PC: Hawaiian Airlines

Hawaiian Airlines announced today it will suspend thrice-weekly nonstop service between Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) and Sapporo’s New Chitose Airport (CTS) from April 2 through July 18.

Company representatives say the airline is adjusting its global network in response to declining travel demand caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As we make temporary schedule adjustments in a rapidly evolving and challenging environment, we remain committed to supporting guests traveling between Japan and Hawai‘i,” said Theo Panagiotoulias, senior vice president for global sales and alliances at Hawaiian Airlines.

“Sapporo is a critical city in our Japan network and we look forward to resuming service in the summer.”

Hawaiian will pause Sapporo operations after its flight from CTS to HNL on April 1. Service is scheduled to resume July 21 from HNL to CTS, and July 22 from CTS to HNL. The airline is assisting guests impacted by its network revisions by offering re-accommodations on alternative flights or providing refunds.
