Hawaiian Airlines has announced that it will offer a seasonal service between Phoenix and Maui this summer as it looks to complement the service it already offers between Phoenix and Honolulu.

In recent weeks and months, we’ve seen United Airlines announce a new route between Orange County and Honolulu and we’ve seen Southwest announce new services from Long Beach to Honolulu and Maui so with airlines like American and Alaska also offering solid options between the western mainland states and Hawaii, it was only a matter of time before we saw Hawaiian upping its game.

Hawaiian’s New Phoenix – Maui Service

Starting on 21 May and continuing through 15 August 2021, Hawaiian Airlines will operate a 4x/week service between Phoenix and Maui (Kahului) on the following schedule:

HA57 PHX 07:00 – 10:25 OGG (Tue, Thu, Sat & Sun)
HA58 OGG 10:40 – 19:25 PHX (Mon, Wed, Fri & Sat)

The route is scheduled to be operated by Hawaiian’s Airbus A321 aircraft which the airline must be hoping will allow it to compete with American Airlines which will also be offering service between Phoenix and Maui this summer (double daily).

Hawaiian Airlines Airbus A321neo

Hawaiian Airlines has been operating the A321neo since January 2018 (the aircraft debuted on the airline’s route between Oakland and Maui) and it has configured the aircraft with three seating options – First Class, Extra Comfort, and Main Cabin.

Here’s how those cabins breakdown:

  • First Class – 16 seats
  • Extra Comfort – 44 seats
  • Main Cabin – 129 seats

The First Class cabin is home to the kind of recliner seats you’d expect to find in most domestic narrowbody First Class cabins offering 21″ of width and 39″ of pitch (legroom).

The Extra Comfort seats are “extra comfortable” because they offer up to 5″ more legroom than the standard Main Cabin seats (35″ vs 30″) but they don’t offer any more width – both Economy Comfort and Main Cabin seats are just 17.3″ wide.

First Class and Extra Comfort seats feature access to full AC power ports and USB ports while passengers in the Main Cabin have to make do with just USB ports.

The A321neo is not fitted with inflight entertainment screens but passengers can stream movies, TV shows, music, etc… to their own phones, tablets, or computers via the Hawaiian Airlines app which passengers should make sure they download before they depart.

Bottom Line

Hawaiian Airlines will take on American Airlines on the Phoenix – Maui route this summer when the airline launches its service on 21 May. Hawaiian will operate this route 4x/week through 15 August using its Airbus A321neo aircraft.
