Aloha Airlines Announces Southern California Schedule

Aloha Will Offer Five Flights a Day From Orange County and Two From San Diego

HONOLULU, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ — Aloha Airlines today announced its schedule for expanding Aloha’s Hawaii service from ultra-convenient John Wayne Airport in Orange County. With the addition of a second daily flight to Honolulu and a second to Maui, Aloha Airlines will operate five daily departures from Orange County, inviting travelers to avoid the traffic and congestion of LAX, and fly to Hawaii with far less hassle.

Beginning April 3, four convenient morning departures daily — two to Maui, one to Honolulu and one to Kona, will provide a tempting array of options for getting to any of Hawaii’s islands in time to enjoy a day on the beach. In addition, a new early-evening flight to Honolulu will make it possible to put in a day’s work before taking off, or make same-day connections through Orange County to other places in Hawaii.

“An in-depth analysis of Aloha’s routes and schedules revealed a strong demand for our brand of transpacific service from Orange County to Hawaii,” said David A. Banmiller, Aloha’s president and chief executive officer. “We are confident the market will continue to grow as Southern Californians become aware of the comfort, convenience and quality of Aloha’s flights to Hawaii.”

Aloha to add a second flight from San Diego

In addition, Aloha also announced that it is increasing service to San Diego, its newest destination.

Beginning April 3, Aloha will operate a daily non-stop from San Diego International Airport to Honolulu. The new flight complements Aloha’s current daily non-stop between San Diego and Maui, which began on December 15, 2004.
