Will HNL Become A Hub For...

Sat Feb 24, 2001 11:29 am

Just a thought, will HNL eventually become a hub for US-Aus/NZ/SWP?? Well except for the trunk routes like LA-Syd/Mel/Akl....

You know... like

ADL-HNL-DEN or
BNE-HNL-CHI or
CNS-HNL-MIA

And what aircrafts will be used for it?? The A330-200??
The 777-200ER ??

Tell me what you think...



Best Regards

I doubt it. It is more likely to continue with LAX being the US entry point and SYD being the Australian entry point.

Services to HNL from Australia are pretty few and far between these days. Only QF serves the route directly and NZ serves it via AKL. With the US Dollar at its current level HNL is a comparatively expensive destination when compared to the other holiday destination available closer for Australians such as the South Pacific, Bali and North Queensland.

Sorry I forgot AC and Canada 3000 also serve HNL direct from Aust but the stop in HNL is really just a refuelling stop with no marketing of the fact that they fly to HNL being made in Aust by AC or Canada 3000.
