• Continental announces new service to Hilo, Hawaii


    Travelers in California who are setting their sights on Hawaii for their next vacation now have more flight options, as Continental Airlines recently announced new service to Hilo.

    Beginning in June 2011, customers will be able to board nonstop flights to the Hawaiian island daily from Los Angeles International Airport and once per week from San Francisco International Airport, on Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

    The new service was introduced as a result of the new merger between Continental and United Airlines, the latter of which has been flying to and from Hawaii since the late 1940s.

    "We are excited to provide customers the only direct flights to Hilo from the mainland … without having to connect in Honolulu," executive vice president and chief revenue officer of United Continental Holdings Jim Compton said in a statement.

    Hawaii Tourism Authority president and CEO Mike McCartney said in a statement that the new routes to Hilo from California has the potential to bring more than 40,000 visitors in the future, generating $50.6 million in tourist spending and boosting the Hawaiian economy.
