Hawaiian Airlines launched its once daily non-stop service between Kaua‘i’s Līhu’e Airport (LIH) and Hawai‘i Island’s Kona International Airport (KOA) on the morning of Sunday, March 12, 2017.

The inaugural flight marked the first time in the airline’s history that it connected Līhu‘e and Kona with a non-stop flight.

The 263-mile flight becomes Hawaiian’s longest Neighbor Island route, besting its flights between Hilo (ITO) and Honolulu International Airport (HNL) by nearly 60 miles.
