The flight takes around ten hours from Honolulu to Boston and 11.5 hours from Boston to Honolulu.

“Honolulu will be Logan’s 76th nonstop domestic destination, and with New Englanders coming off a long winter this flight’s start date is worth the wait,” Thomas Glynn said in a statement, CEO of the Massport agency that operates Logan International Airport.

“As Hawai‘i’s airline, we take great pride in sharing our love of these Islands, and as we welcome our newest guests from the East Coast, we are confident they will find that their vacation begins and ends with us,’’ said Peter Ingram, Chief Executive and President of Hawaiian Airlines.

Hawaiian’s newest non-stop route will also provide Hawaiians more access to the places in the East Coast

“We also want to help Hawai‘i residents get to where they want to go, and we know that people here travel to New England frequently,’’ added Ingram.

Hawaiian will operate five weekly flights on its new route with Airbus A330s. Before launching the route, the Honolulu-based airline has also extended its codeshare partnership with JetBlue, which has a large appearance in Boston, one of the focus cities for the U.S. budget carrier.
