US Airways customers will now have more ways to catch the Aloha Spirit when the airline begins nonstop service between its largest hub in Charlotte, North Carolina and Honolulu, Hawaii on the island of Oahu. Daily, year-round service is set to begin Thursday, December 17, 2009. The new flight will complement US Airways’ daily nonstop service to Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island from its Phoenix hub. It will be operated with Boeing 767 aircraft with seating for 18 in First Class and 186 in the main cabin. “Hawaii is one of US Airways’ most popular vacation destinations. We’re pleased to add another flight and give our customers on the East Coast easy access to Honolulu and the Island of Oahu,” said Senior Vice President, Marketing and Planning, Andrew Nocella.
“This announcement of nonstop service from Charlotte to Honolulu is great news for the Charlotte passenger and reaffirms the strength of Charlotte Douglas International Airport as a US Airways hub,” said City of Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory.
