Hawaiian Airlines announced yesterday the addition of 31 seasonal flights to its established schedules in September and October between Honolulu and its three Oceania gateways.

The additional fall flights to Sydney and Brisbane, Australia, and Auckland, New Zealand will launch on March 13. Officials with Hawaiian Airlines say the new flights will add approximately 8,800 new air seats on the three routes during a peak travel period for Australian and Kiwi travelers.

“Demand for our services in Australia and New Zealand is particularly strong during this period when schools are out and families are on holiday,” said Peter Ingram, Hawaiian’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer, in a written statement.

Officials with Hawaiian Airlines report that Hawaiian is increasing its Sydney-Honolulu service from daily to 10 flights per week from Sep. 11 to Oc. 19, adding 17 extra flights to the schedule.
