Hawaiian Airlines increases capacity to Tahiti
Hawaiian Airlines is responding to the increased demand for its service to Papeete, Tahiti, by changing aircraft on the route from the 264-seat Boeing 767-300ER to its 294-seat Airbus A330-200, adding 30 more seats to the weekly service.
The change will be made effective Nov. 2, the airline said.
In addition to increased capacity, Hawaiian Airlines is also adjusting its flight schedule on the Papeete route with departure and arrival times moved one hour earlier. Beginning Nov. 2, Hawaiian Airlines Flight HA 481 will depart Honolulu International Airport at 3:35 p.m. every Saturday, and land at Faa‘a International Airport at 9:30 p.m. The return Flight HA 482 will depart Papeete at 11:30 p.m. every Saturday and will arrive in Honolulu at 5:15 a.m. the following morning on Sunday.
The new flight schedule also allows travelers to board the popular Paul Gauguin Cruise Ships in Tahiti.
