Hawaiian Airlines has announced plans to offer daily flights between the Lihue Airport on Kauai and both Oakland and Los Angeles during the peak summer travel months of 2016.

The carrier will also begin four-times-weekly nonstop service between Los Angeles and the Kona Airport on the Big Island of Hawaii starting May 27.

“Next summer will mark Hawaiian’s third year offering more options to our guests during the peak travel period,” Peter Ingram, Hawaiian Airlines’ executive vice president and CCO, said in a statement. “Thanks to the robust demand from West Coast travelers, we are pleased to build on the success of our seasonal routes by introducing daily service from California to Kauai.”  

Additionally, Hawaiian will offer three-times-weekly nonstop service between Oakland and Kona beginning May 27.

The seasonal Oakland and Los Angeles service to Kauai and the Big Island of Hawaii will add close to 74,000 air seats to the travel markets over 14 weeks, according to Hawaiian.

The carrier will operate 294-passenger Airbus A330 aircraft on the Kona-California routes and 264-passenger Boeing 767-300ER aircraft on the Kauai-California segments.
