Hawaiian Airlines (HA) has confirmed it will indefinitely suspend its Honolulu-Brisbane service while continuing to offer flights from Sydney to Hawaii.

Hawaiian Airlines (HA) has confirmed it will indefinitely suspend its Honolulu-Brisbane service while continuing to offer flights from Sydney to Hawaii.

The news will be disappointing for Hawai’i loving Queenslanders, given Hawaiian has served Brisbane as a direct favourite since November 2012.

HA was forced to suspend all flights between Hawai’i and Australia in March 2020 due to government entry restrictions imposed at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hawaiian resumed a five-times-weekly service between Sydney and Honolulu on Dec. 13 with the airline saying demand for Hawaii and Sydney-Honolulu service remains strong and promising for the year ahead.

“This is a difficult decision, but like many other airlines we find ourselves rebuilding our network in a vastly different operating environment,” said Andrew Stanbury, Hawaiian Airlines Regional Director Australia and New Zealand.

HA had planned to resume Honolulu-Brisbane flights from late April 2022.
