Hawaiian Launches HND Service

Omedetoo gozaimasu (congratulations)!

Hawaiian Air inaugurates service to Haneda International Airport (Tokyo, Japan) today!  HAL457 is the outbound leg to HND, with HAL456 the return. 767-33AER, N589HA, "Moli", had the honors to make Hawaiian's first flight to Japan.  Among the passengers were Hawai‘i News Now videographer/reporter Oscar Valenzuela, and the cast and crew from OC16's "Doko Ga TV".

There were multiple hula performances by the Hawaiian Air Serenaders.

A traditional Japanese dance performed by members of the Soto Mission in Nu‘uanu.

KHON's Brianne Randle interviews Hawaiian Air CEO Mark Dunkerley, who was aboard the flight with his wife Marillia.

Each passenger received an orchid lei prior to boarding.


Ganbatte kudasai!

Hawaiian Air, arigato gozaimashita!
