Budget airline Jetstar has gained approval from the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) to start marketing its long haul services between Honolulu and Australia.
Jetstar intends operating three Sydney-Honolulu flights per week and two Melbourne-Honolulu flights per week with a fleet of Airbus A330-200s, offering two classes of service.
Jetstar chief executive Alan Joyce said that in the next few weeks the airline will start accepting flight reservations for its Hawaii services along with an announcement of its launch date.
Expect some very cheap introductory fares to HNL. I wonder what other possible US destinations that JQ can serve in the future if this route does go well
