On April 4, the longest regularly scheduled non-stop interstate flight in U.S. history took off from Honolulu to Boston. Passengers who take this 5,095-mile route on Hawaiian Airlines fly from Logan International Airport to Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in 11 hours and 40 minutes. The return trip is 10 hours and 15 minutes.
Hawaiian Airlines offers the non-stop flights five days a week. Outbound flights depart Boston on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Saturday at 8:55 a.m. and arrive in Honolulu at 2:35 p.m. On Friday, the flight leaves Logan at 8 a.m. and arrives at 1:40 p.m.
Return flights depart Honolulu at 1:45 p.m. on Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and arrive in Boston at 6:00 the next morning.
A press release from Hawaiian Airlines states that the flight number, HA90, was chosen “in commemoration of the city of Boston’s deep history and Hawaiian Airlines’ 90th year of operation starting on Nov. 11.”
Passengers arriving in Honolulu can make connections to Kaua’i, Maui, or the Island of Hawai’i via Hawaiian Airlines’ 170 daily interisland jet flights. It’s the largest interisland carrier in the state.
