OAKLAND (CBS/AP) – Hawaiian Airlines is doubling its nonstop flights between Maui and the Bay Area.
The airline said that starting Oct. 3, there will be 14 flights per week to Maui from Oakland and San Jose. Hawaiian usually offers four flights per week between Oakland and Maui and three flights per week between San Jose and Maui.
By increasing Maui service, Hawaiian is reducing flights to Honolulu from Oakland and San Jose.
Hawaiian Executive Vice-President and Chief Commercial Officer Peter Ingram said there’s been tremendous demand for Maui service from customers in Oakland and San Jose.
As part of the announcement, special fares are offered for travel between Oakland and San Jose and all the Hawaii airports the airline serves.
