IMG_9879Hawaiian Airlines announced on Friday the start of service linking Honolulu with Boston, when Flight 90 departed Daniel K. Inouye International Airport on Thursday, landing early Friday morning at Boston Logan International Airport.

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).

“Having Hawaiian open new routes like Boston spreads the spirit of aloha to more of the planet, said Hawaii Governor David Ige.

The service will 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 is operating 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.

Flight time from Honolulu to Boston is roughly ten hours while the return flight is approximately 11.5 hours.
