At 5,095 miles (8,199 kilometers), the new Hawaiian Airlines non-stop flight from Boston Logan International Airport in Massachusetts to Daniel K. Inouye Airport in Honolulu will surpass the current record-holder for the country’s longest domestic flight, New York-Honolulu, of 4,970 miles (8,000 kilometers), by 115 miles (185 kilometers).

The airline announced the new flight on Thursday.

“We are bringing our islands closer than ever to Boston with nonstop service,” said the airline’s CEO, Peter Ingram.

In honor of the airline’s 90th anniversary, the flight from Honolulu to Boston will carry the designation of Flight 90.

The service will launch on April 4, 2019 and operate on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Flight 90 will depart Honolulu at 1:45 p.m. local time and arrive in Boston the following morning at 6 a.m. The return flight will operate Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Hawaiian will operate the flight using Airbus A330-200 aircraft, which have 18 fully lie-flat seats arranged in a 2-2-2 configuration in the first-class cabin, 68 seats in the premium-economy lite section, and 192 in coach.
