Hawaiian Airlines will increase the frequency of its existing nonstop service between Honolulu and Seoul, South Korea, from four times weekly to a daily flight beginning July 16.

“Offering daily flights between Seoul and Honolulu has always been part of our growth plan,” Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian’s president and CEO, said in a statement.

Hawaiian inaugurated its Honolulu-Seoul route Jan. 12 last year and said boosting its service to a daily flight will add 40,000 air seats to Honolulu annually.

According to the Hawaii Tourism Authority, 216,000 available air seats arrived in Honolulu from Seoul through the first 10 months of 2011, a 90.5% increase over the same period the year before.
