· Hawaiian Airlines:
There will soon be even more flights heading back and forth between different slices of paradise, as Hawaiian Airlines has signed some paperwork to get three more Boeing 717s to serve as interisland shuttle jets. The new-to-them planes should arrive in sometime this fall and will be put to use shuttling tourists and locals between the islands. All in all the new planes should boost interisland capacity by about 20 flights per day, and they’re even looking for some new pilots and flight attendants to help out with the increase boost in capacity—we kind of want to apply.
· Asiana Airlines:
Before you can take an interisland flight you’ll actually need to get to Hawaii, and it’s now a little bit easier to access Honolulu from South Korea thanks to Asiana Airlines. The airline is starting up a nonstop option beginning in September between Seoul and Honolulu, and the flights are scheduled to run two times per week through the beginning of December. Apparently there’s been quite the boom in Korean tourists coming to the islands, so a few more seats back and forth is probably a good idea.

For those looking for a solid connection for an around the world itinerary, there’s a new option from Emirates that just might help you connect the dots a little bit better. Beginning on August 1 Emirates will start nonstop flights between Dubai and Copenhagen, and this is the first time that the carrier has sent one of its planes up to Scandinavia. They’ll be using Airbus A330s for the new route, and the flights are scheduled to be a daily thing each day of the year. Even if Dubai isn’t your final destination, there’s certainly quite a few awesome connection opportunities through Dubai.
