Hawaiian Airlines Relaunches Tokyo Haneda-Kona Flights

Hawaiian Airlines will relaunch a nonstop service connecting Tokyo’s Haneda Airport to Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport this fall. The airline had initially launched the Haneda-Kona route in 2016 but had to halt this flight service in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
