Today (February 12, 2021), United Airlines announced the launch of exclusive nonstop service between Orange County, California and Honolulu starting May 6, 2021. The airline will also start first-ever nonstop flights between Chicago and Kona, as well as between New York-Newark and Maui from June 3, 2021.

In Friday’s announcement, United Airlines’ Vice President of International Network and Alliances, Patrick Quayle, said,
"We know customers are dreaming of summer getaways and we want United to be their top choice for travel to Hawaii. Our new Hawaii routes from Chicago, Newark and Orange County, in addition to the dozens of flights United already operates from the mainland to Hawaii, offer travelers even more options, greater convenience and shorter travel times to the fantastic outdoor offerings Hawaii has to offer.”
United Airlines has served Hawaii for over 70 years and was the first airline to offer service between the mainland and Kona and Maui in 1983. The airline remains a pioneer of the Hawaiian Islands with the first-ever launch of service between Chicago and Kona, as well as from New York-Newark to Maui in summer 2021. The new flights are times with convenient connections for customers connecting in Chicago and Newark from the Midwest and East Coast. Southern Californians will also enjoy the only nonstop service between Orange County’s John Wayne International Airport and Honolulu from May 6, 2021.
