Hawaiian Airlines said it would return to the skies come August, after having suspended flights amidst the coronavirus outbreak in mid-March.

The move comes as the state begins to admit visitors who are tested for Covid-19 prior to flying.

Starting August 1, the Honolulu-based airline will offer non-stop long-haul service from cities to Honolulu.  The list includes Boston, Las Vegas, New York, Oakland, Phoenix, and San Jose.

In addition, it will restart service from five West Coast cities, operating those with Airbus A321neo narrow-body aircraft.  These flights will include linking Maui to Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento, San Francisco, and San Jose; and connecting Kauai to Los Angeles and Oakland.  Hawaiian will also restart flights between Kona and Los Angeles.

The airline’s non-stop service between American Samoa and Honolu will start on August 6.

In addition, the airline began non-stop service between Portland and Honolulu on Tuesday and will add non-stop service linking Honolulu with both San Diego and Sacramento on July 15.
