United becomes the leading carrier to Hawaii by increasing service in 11 routes

Share via:


On December 20 United takes an additional step in its aggressive domestic expansion, this time by increasing service between Hawaii and hubs in Chicago, Los Angeles, Denver, and San Francisco. What could be better than getting a tan in December?

Additionally, just in time for summer United announced lie-flat seats in all flights between Hawaii and Chicago, Denver, Houston, New York/Newark and Washington, D.C. With this move United becomes the carrier with most fights between Hawaii and mainland U.S.

Here are the details of the service increase from the official news release:

Denver International Airport (DEN)

Beginning December 20, service between Denver and Kona (KOA), Lihue (LIH) and Maui (OGG) will increase from seasonal to daily year-round service. The airline will continue its year-round daily service from Denver to Honolulu.
