Hawaiian Airlines suspends Maui-San Diego flights

Advertiser Staff

Hawaiian Airlines said today that it will temporarily suspend its daily service between San Diego and Maui from Jan. 9 to March 15.

The state's largest airline announced in May that it would fly daily San Diego to Maui flights year around when it acquired four Boeing 767-300 aircraft from Delta Air Lines.

But Hawaiian, which had been flying between Maui and San Diego only during the summer, said it ran into delays in modifying and certifying three of the new planes, forcing it to suspend the daily service.

Hawaiian said it will accommodate travelers affected by rebooking them on San-Diego-Honolulu service with an interisland flight to Maui, or by making other travel accommodations.
