Following the announcement of a 14-day quarantine period for returning residents and visitors to the Hawaiian Islands alike, Hawaiian Airlines said it would temporarily suspend most flights to Hawaii.

The suspension will start on March 26, 2020.

“Our regular flight schedule will be maintained through Wednesday, March 25 to allow guests to return home before we begin suspending most of our North America and International routes for the remainder of March,” the airline said in a statement on its website.

Outside of inter-island service, which will see some reductions in service, the airline will continue to operate a daily non-stop linking Honolulu with Los Angeles and one weekly non-stop linking Honolulu with American Samoa.

“Hawai‘i is our home and all 7,500 of us at our company care deeply for it,” said the airline’s president, Peter Ingram, who added that the carrier support’s the state’s efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

The first change in inter-island service will be the suspension of ‘Ohana by Hawaiian service linking Honolulu and Kapalua in West Maui. The airline said it “intends to maintain a network that will continue to provide vital connectivity for guests traveling within the state.”
