Hawaiian Airlines Adjusts Brisbane-Honolulu Departures for Improved U.S. Connections



WHY IT RATES: Hawaiian Airlines is working hard to connect the American people with Hawaii and Australia.—Donald Wood, Breaking News Senior Writer.

Effective 8 January 2020, Hawaiian Airlines departures from Brisbane International Airport (BNE) to Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) will be retimed to improve connections for guests flying from Brisbane to the airline’s 13 U.S. Mainland cities. Aussie travelers will also benefit from round trip connectivity to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Seattle and San Francisco – Australia’s most in-demand markets from the carrier’s North America network.

In Hawaiian’s revised schedule, flights out of BNE will be adjusted from the current 9.45 p.m. departure to 8:25 p.m., arriving into HNL at 9:50 a.m. Flight out of HNL will be adjusted from the current 1:35 p.m. departure to 12:35 p.m., arriving into BNE at 6:25 p.m. the following day.

“We are pleased with the strong demand from the Queensland market for our flights from Brisbane to Honolulu and onward to the U.S. Mainland, and wanted to provide our guests with improved access and connectivity so they can make the most out of their North American vacation,” said Andrew Stanbury, Regional Director of Australia and New Zealand at Hawaiian Airlines.

The adjusted schedule will also increase connectivity to partner Virgin Australia’s domestic network offering guests more convenient options through the carriers’ expanded codeshare.

“Similarly, the new southbound schedule will provide a more streamlined homeward journey for guests flying onwards with Virgin Australia beyond Brisbane to other Australian cities,” said Stanbury.

From Australia, Hawaiian offers service to flights Boston, Las Vegas, Long Beach, Los Angeles, New York City (JFK), Oakland, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose and Seattle, via Honolulu, along with 170 jet flights daily between the Hawaiian Islands.

Fares from Australia include one of the industry’s most generous checked baggage allowances of 64kg per person (2x32kg bags), complimentary in-flight entertainment, and island-inspired meals crafted by Hawaiian Airlines Executive Chef Lee Anne Wong. In addition to the carrier’s award-winning hospitality, guests also enjoy the roominess and comfort of Hawaiian’s Airbus A330 aircraft, which features 18 fully-flat Premium Cabin leather seats and 68 of its popular Extra Comfort seats with more legroom and enhanced amenities, in addition to 192 Main Cabin seats.

United Airlines Provides Free Flights to Medical Volunteers



United Airlines has partnered with the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City in order to provide free roundtrip flights for doctors, nurses and other medical professionals working to treat patients with coronavirus.

“Our healthcare workers are heroes, and they need reinforcements,” said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. “This generous partnership with United Airlines will ensure medical professionals from across the country can come to New York City to help us in our hour of need.”

New York has become the focal point of the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S., specifically in New York City, which has more than 50,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19. Hospital staff quickly found themselves overwhelmed due to overcrowding. Several notable landmarks have been converted into makeshift hospitals throughout the city.

United is also working with local government agencies and non-profit partners to provide New York hospitals with much-needed qualified medical professionals. The airline is closely collaborating with a network of professional medical volunteer organizations to help enlist volunteers and bring them to locations where they are needed the most.

“The COVID-19 pandemic is one of those extraordinary times that demonstrates how we come together as a profession to provide desperately needed assistance and care,” said Society of Critical Care Medicine President, Lewis J Kaplan, M.D., FCCM.

United has joined many brands across the nation to help support front-line responders by providing them free or reduced services.

Several hotels and lodging brands are offering free or subsidized housing for medical workers and front-line responders, while local and national restaurants are providing these workers with free food or large discounts.
