Is BNE on Hawaiian's radar now ???

Travel Today article yesterday

Hawaiian eyes second port.Hawaiian Airlines will explore the possibility of operating to a second Australian gateway should it's expanding Sydney operation perform well.

President and chief executive Mark Dunkerley told Travel Today that a new Australian route has previously appeared on a list of potential new route destinations without ever being on the verge of being launched.But it could be back on the radar,he said.

“We would certainly look at a new gateway but key to that is how well the new frequencies and larger aircraft are received in Sydney.

“Australia is an important destination for Hawaiian.I would hope to launch into a new Australian gateway.

In May – “possibly sooner”, said Dunkerley the carrier will then replace the 264 seater B767 with 294 seater A330'S.

A move that will increase capacity by a further 11%
