Starting just in time for the Christmas holidays on December 15th, the flight will go from Maui’s Kahului Airport (OGG) to Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport (LAS).

Included in the press release, the president and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines, Peter Ingram said the following:

“Hawaiian has been carrying local residents to and from Las Vegas, and welcoming our Nevada visitors to Hawai‘i for over 30 years…We’re thrilled to once again offer the convenience of nonstop flights between the Valley Isle and the ninth island.”

*According to Nevada Public Radio[2], Hawaiians love Las Vegas – a lot. So much so that Las Vegas has the biggest population of Hawaiians outside Hawaii. Therefore, this is how the city gets its nickname as the “ninth island” of Hawaii.

Hawaiian’s A321neos

The inaugural flight of their A321neo between the U.S. West Coast and Hawaii took place in January 2018 on their existing Oakland (OAK) to Kahului, Maui (OGG) service. In fact, Airways Magazine wrote up a fairly extensive review[4] of the experience. Since then, Hawaiian has been slowly taking deliveries of the A321neo.

The Main Cabin and Extra Comfort sections of Hawaiian’s A321neo do not have seatback inflight entertainment. Instead, guests in these cabins can stream entertainment to their mobile devices, tablets or laptops. According to the airline’s website, these cabins feature the following:
