HONOLULU - Hawaiian Airlines will begin offering direct flights to Boston next Spring.

Non-stop service from the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) will begin on April 4. The more than 5,000 mile flight is the longest regularly scheduled domestic route in U.S. history. 

“There is nowhere on Earth like Hawai‘i, and we are bringing our islands closer than ever to Boston with nonstop service,” said Hawaiian Airlines President and CEO Peter Ingram.

On any given day, the airline says there are 500 people flying between eastern New England and the islands. Ingram added that Boston is the largest market that doesn't have non-stop service to Hawaii. 

He explained, "We hear from a lot of people about the places they want to go and Boston is one that has come up a number of times in the past. Not only is Boston a leisure destination in its ownright, but often, because there are so many great schools in Boston and the New England area, many of our high school graduates go off to study in that area of the country."

To celebrate the new non-stop service, Hawaiian Airlines is offering roundtrip fares starting at $617.
