Delta Air Lines has just announced three new long haul domestic flights to Hawaii, which many travelers may find convenient.
Delta’s new Hawaii service from Atlanta, Detroit, and New York
As of late 2022, Delta will be launching three new routes to Hawaii, out of Atlanta, Detroit, and New York. While these routes have been operated in the past, what’s interesting is that these routes are expected to be year-round this time. All three routes will be operated by Boeing 767-300s, featuring Delta One (business class), Comfort+ (extra legroom economy), and Main Cabin (economy).
Let’s go over the details of the routes.
Delta’s Atlanta to Maui flight
As of November 19, 2022, Delta will launch daily nonstop flights between Atlanta (ATL) and Maui (OGG). The flight will operate with the following schedule:
Atlanta to Maui departing 11:00AM arriving 4:00PM
Maui to Atlanta departing 5:25PM arriving 6:40AM (+1 day)
The 4,431 mile flight is blocked at 10hr westbound and 8hr15min eastbound. This complements Delta’s existing flight from Atlanta to Honolulu.
Delta’s Detroit to Honolulu flight
As of November 19, 2022, Delta will launch daily nonstop flights between Detroit (DTW) and Honolulu (HNL). The flight will operate with the following schedule:
Detroit to Honolulu departing 12:15PM arriving 4:00PM
Honolulu to Detroit departing 5:00PM arriving 6:30AM (+1 day)
The 4,475 mile flight is blocked at 8hr45min westbound and 8hr30min eastbound.
Delta’s New York to Honolulu flight
As of December 17, 2022, Delta will launch daily nonstop flights between New York (JFK) and Honolulu (HNL). The flight will operate with the following schedule:
New York to Honolulu departing 9:00AM arriving 3:35PM
Honolulu to New York departing 4:55PM arriving 7:25AM (+1 day)
The 4,983 mile flight is blocked at 11hr35min westbound and 9hr30min eastbound. Delta will be competing directly with Hawaiian Airlines on this route.
It’s always great to see more long haul flights to Hawaii from the mainland, both because it’s convenient for those from further east in the United States, and because these flights are operated by long haul aircraft.
With Delta’s latest expansion, the airline is adding Hawaii flights out of Atlanta, Detroit, and New York. These flights will be daily and year-round, so this should be a useful option for many Delta flyers.
What do you make of Delta’s Hawaii expansion?
