On Sunday (October 24, 2021), Hawaiian Airlines announced the restart of nonstop service between Australia’s Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport (SYD) and Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) from December 13, 2021. Service on the Sydney-Honolulu route was originally suspended in March 2020 due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The route will be operated five times weekly with a 278-seat Airbus A330 featuring 18 Premium Cabin lie-flat leather seats, 68 Extra Comfort seats and 192 Main Cabin seats. Currently, only Australian citizens and returning permanent residents and their immediate family members are permitted to enter Australia without exemption.

In Sunday’s announcement, Hawaiian Airlines’ Regional Director for Australia and New Zealand, Andrew Stanbury, said,

“We are thrilled to reconnect Hawaiʻi and Australia and have been encouraged by the public’s response to Australia’s national vaccination program, enabling the reopening of borders. Hawaiʻi is a hugely popular holiday destination for Australians, and we know many people have been keenly waiting to take a Hawaiian vacation. We are looking forward to safely welcoming our guests back on board to enjoy the authentic hospitality we know our guests love and have missed.”

From December 13, 2021, HA451 will depart Honolulu on Mondays and Wednesday through Saturday at 11:50, arriving in Sydney at approximately 19:45 the next day. Starting December 15th, the return flight (HA452) will depart Sydney on Tuesdays and Thursday through Sunday at 21:40 and will arrive in Honolulu at 10:35. Arriving guests can enjoy O’ahu or connect to any of Hawaiian’s four Neighbor Island Destinations, or seamlessly connect to 16 U.S. mainland gateways, including new service to Austin, Orlando, and Ontario, California.
