Hawaiian Airlines has opened ticket sales for new daily nonstop service between Salt Lake City and Honolulu, which will start May 15th. The carrier will also expand service in Sacramento with four weekly flights to Lihuʻe and three weekly flights to Kona.
On Wednesday (November 19, 2023), Hawaiian Airlines announced the opening of ticket sales for new daily direct service nonstop service between Salt Lake City (SLC) and Honolulu (HNL) starting May 15, 2024.

In Wednesday’s announcement, Hawaiian Airlines’ President and CEO, Peter Ingram, said,
“We know this new route will excite travelers in both Utah and Hawaiʻi given our tourism and education ties, and shared Pacific Island communities. We are eager to strengthen these relationships when we launch our service next summer.”
Also commenting on the new service, Salt Lake City International Airport’s Executive Director, Bill Wyatt, added,
“We are thrilled to welcome Hawaiian Airlines to Salt Lake City International. Hawaiʻi is not only a favorite destination for Utahns to vacation, but is also a popular location for family members to visit.”
