Korean Air will restart flights to Hawaii on November 3, 2020, after suspending operations due to COVID-19 on April 3, 2020.
The Incheon-Honolulu service (KE053) will run three times a week, departing Incheon International Airport at 8:35 p.m. on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday and arriving in Honolulu at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.
The Honolulu-Incheon flight (KE054) will depart Honolulu at 11:40 a.m. every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.
As travel demand to Hawaii has gradually increased, Korean Air has chosen to resume the Hawaiian route.
The number of Korean tourists visiting Hawaii has increased dramatically from 200 in January 2021 to 1,000 every month in recent months. Korean Air operated 14 flights per week (two daily flights) between Incheon and Hawaii prior to the pandemic.
Korean Air will continue to monitor regional and international pandemic limitations and consider restarting further suspended routes as part of its commitment to onboard health and safety.
