Kia ora to a Hawaiian Maiden
Aloha Auckland! Arriving into Auckland this evening was Hawaiian Airlines' Airbus A330 N381HA inaugurating the airline's thrice weekly service from Honolulu to Auckland. The airline's initial plan was for the flights to be operated by Boeing 767-300s but the better than expected response to the new service prompted Hawaiian to upgrade the aircraft operating on the service to the larger Airbus. In recent days the airline has also announced that they are increasing the number of flights from three to four per week during the peak period of September 19 to October 11.
