Hawaiian Airlines plans to increase capacity on its flights between Honolulu and Osaka, Japan, beginning April 21, saying it will upgrade service on the daily nonstop flights with its new 294-passenger Airbus A330 aircraft.

The airline inaugurated daily service between the cities last July and said replacing the Boeing B767-300s it currently operates on the route with the A330s will add 30 seats per flight and nearly 11,000 seats annually.

“Six months ago we introduced a completely new way to enjoy flying to Hawaii for people in the Kansai region, and the response has been extremely strong,” Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “Introducing our new A330 aircraft to Osaka service will further improve the travel experience for our customers traveling from Kansai and help meet growing demand.”
