Virgin America is expanding its service to Maui with daily nonstop flights between Los Angeles International Airport to Kahului. Virgin America is also adding daily nonstop flights between LAX and Honolulu beginning May 5; Maui flights will commence on June 14.
The new service adds to the airline’s recently-launched service between San Francisco International Airport, Maui and Oahu.
The new flights also provide roundtrip connecting service between Honolulu and New York, Las Vegas and Seattle. The expanded service also will allow roundtip connections between Maui and Newark, Washington DC, Boston, San Diego, Dallas and Chicago; Maui passengers will also be able to connect to NYC, Las Vegas and Seattle via the new flights.
“Virgin America is providing more airline choice and competition to our great state, and we could not be more pleased that they are already adding more routs to the Hawaiian Islands from Los Angeles – our largest originating travel market,” said Governor David Ige. “We look forward to Virgin America’s continued growth and success in servicing travelers visiting the islands.”
Hawaii Tourism Authority’s president and CEO George D. Szigeti said the addition of more seats flying direct between LA and Honolulu and Kahului will not only expand the availability to more islands, but provide visitors with another excellent airline option. “We are thrilled to have this easy access for both visitors and residents flying between the West Coast and Hawaii,” Szigeti said.
