Available seats on nonstop flights departing from the U.S. mainland for Hawaii are forecast to jump nearly 9.3% year over year during the three-month period ending Feb. 28.

Airlift from Hawaii’s largest source market, U.S. states west of the Rockies, is expected to surge 9.5% over the same three-month stretch a year prior, according to the Hawaii Tourism Authority’s latest air seat capacity outlook.

Seats on nonstop flights to the Islands from U.S. states east of the Rockies will likely improve 7.7%.

Total airlift to the Islands is forecast to climb just over 6% through February despite a predicted seat decrease of 6.9% on nonstop flights to Hawaii from Japan, the Aloha State’s largest international market.
