Maui residents looking to experience Hawai‘i’s “Ninth Island” can now enjoy non-stop service to Las Vegas with Hawaiian Airlines’ new four-times-weekly flights between Kahului Airport (OGG) and McCarran International Airport (LAS).
The carrier celebrated its newest route with Hawaiian music and lei for guests departing at OGG today. Earlier, the airline hosted a special giveaway at Kahului’s Maui Sunday Market that invited attendees to show up with packed bags and be ready to board the inaugural flight, HA32, that evening. Two lucky winners, each accompanied by a guest, embarked on an all-inclusive roundtrip to Las Vegas, including a complimentary AVIS rental car, and hotel provided by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
Hawaiian Airlines is the leading domestic carrier for travel between Maui and the U.S. West Coast, connecting Kahului to Los Angeles, Oakland, Portland, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, and Seattle. Las Vegas becomes the airline’s ninth U.S. West Coast city with nonstop service to OGG.
HA32 departed OGG at 8:50 p.m. tonight and is scheduled to arrive at LAS at 4:30 a.m. The return flight, HA31, has a 6:30 a.m. scheduled departure at LAS tomorrow, with an 11 a.m. estimated arrival at OGG that gives travelers the afternoon to relax and enjoy the sights, sounds, and flavors of the Valley Isle.
Hawaiian first launched service between LAS and the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) in September 1985 with Lockheed L-1011 aircraft, and previously operated OGG-LAS flights from October 2010 to October 2012 with Boeing 767 aircraft. Hawaiian, which also offers up to three daily nonstop flights between Honolulu and Las Vegas with Airbus A330 aircraft, carried more than 470,000 guests between the two cities in 2018.
Guests traveling between Maui and Las Vegas can indulge in the comfort of Hawaiian’s newest fleet of Airbus A321neo aircraft. The quiet and fuel-efficient A321neo features 16 luxurious leather recliners in First Class, 44 Extra Comfort premium economy seats, and 129 Economy seats. In addition to the carrier’s award-winning service, including complimentary meals, in-flight entertainment and Hawaiian hospitality, guests have ample access to additional overhead stowage space and USB outlets to charge personal entertainment devices.
