Starting on July 1, Hawaiian Airlines will offer daily nonstop flights between Los Angeles and Maui. The new year-round service will be operated by the airline’s 330-200 aircraft, adding more than 120,000 air seats to both Maui and Los Angeles’ travel markets.

“The island of Maui continues to grow as a popular visitor destination and also serves as an ideal transit point for neighbor-island and U.S. mainland travel,” said Peter Ingram, Hawaiian Airlines executive vice president and chief commercial officer. “We’ve seen tremendous demand from both Southern California travelers and our [residents], and we’re very pleased to offer this new daily nonstop service for them.”

The airline also announced a milestone this month: It set a new record in its 84-year history with more than 9.9 million passengers transported in 2013, a 4.8 percent increase over the previous year. www.hawaiianairlines.com
