United Returns To Hilo

Beginning June 9, 2011, United (Continental) Airlines will launch daily service between LAX and ITO, and weekly Saturday service between SFO and ITO using 737-824s. United will use Continental aircraft and flight codes for the ITO flights.

This will be the first west coast flights to/from ITO since American Trans Air (ATA) collapsed in April 2008.

Thank you so much for passing this along! I have missed the non-stop flights to Hilo.

Remember when United flew DC-8's in there every day? When did that stop?

The original UA service was dropped in 1986 ... around when the phase out of the DC-8s began.
