Inouye International Airport (HNL), starting on Dec. 13.

According to HA, it suspended the route in March of 2020 due to travel restrictions imposed at the onset of the pandemic and now will welcome Australians back to the islands with its signature Hawaiian hospitality in time for the holidays.

We are thrilled to reconnect Hawai’i and Australia and have been encouraged by the public’s response to Australia’s national vaccination program, enabling the reopening of borders,” said Andrew Stanbury, reginal director for Australia and New Zealand at HA.

“Hawai’i is a hugely popular holiday destination for Australians, and we know many people have been keenly waiting to take a Hawaiian vacation. We are looking forward to safely welcoming our guests back on board to enjoy the authentic hospitality we know our guests love and have missed,” Stanbury added.

HA said their flight HA451 will resume Dec. 13 by departing HNL on Mondays and Wednesday through Saturday at 11:50 a.m. and arriving at SYD approximately at 7:45 p.m. the next day.
