Citing concerns regarding Covid-19, Hawaiian Airlines announced that it would temporarily suspend its service from Honolulu to South Korea’s Incheon Airport.
The five-times-weekly nonstop service will halt from March 2 to April 30, the airline said in a statement.
“We believe a temporary service suspension is prudent given the escalation of Covid-19 in South Korea and the impact the illness has had on demand for leisure travel from that country,” said Peter Ingram, Hawaiian Airlines’ president and CEO. “We will continue to closely monitor the situation and extend our support for public health efforts to contain the virus. We apologize for this inconvenience and are working to support impacted guests.”
Service is scheduled to resume on May 1 from Honolulu and on May 2 from South Korea. Hawaiian is offering re-accommodations on alternative flights or providing refunds to affected customers.
Hawaiian has also issued a travel waiver for guests holding tickets on Hawaiian Airlines codeshare flights involving South Korea airports.
