Hawaiian Airlines began selling tickets Tuesday for its new non-stop service between Honolulu and Taipei, Taiwan.

The service will launch July 9 with flights offered three days weekly using its wide-body Airbus A330-200 aircraft which seats 294 passengers.

Pending government approval, round-trip fares for travel in July, which is high season, start at TWD40,049 for travel originating in Taipei and $1,369 for travel originating in Honolulu.

Hawaiian also announced the launch of a new traditional Chinese-language website for travelers in Taiwan to book tickets.


“Travelers on our Taipei route can count on us offering the best fares, a great schedule to make the most of their trip, and a genuine Hawai‘i travel experience with inflight service unmatched in the industry,” said Peter Ingram, Hawaiian’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer, in a written statement.


Beginning July 9, subject to Taiwan government approval, Hawaiian Flight HA 807 has plans to depart Honolulu International Airport at 1:55 a.m. on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, cross the international dateline, and land at Taipei International Airport at 6:15 a.m. the following day.

Beginning July 10, the return Flight HA 808 is expected to depart Taipei at 8:55 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, cross the international dateline, and arrive in Honolulu at 1:10 p.m. the same day.

Hawaiian is also offering its customers flying to Taipei – from any of its 11 gateway cities in North America – free stopovers in Hawai‘i.
