Saturday, July 21, 2012 - Hawaiian Airlines is flying the first of four nonstop charter flights this Saturday between Sendai, Japan and Honolulu in collaboration with Japan Travel Bureau (JTB).

Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian’s president and CEO, commented, “We are so pleased to be working with JTB to bring travelers to Hawai‘i from a region that was so completely devastated only 16 months ago, and we look forward to welcoming these visitors to the islands with our special brand of service.”

Located 180 miles north of Tokyo on the Pacific Coast of Honshu Island, Sendai is the capital city of Miyagi Prefecture and the largest city of the Tohoku Region, with a population of approximately one million residents. The Sendai region was at the center of destruction caused by the earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011.

The response to Hawaiian’s charter service has been strong from Sendai. Saturday’s flight is booked to 95 percent capacity.

The four charter flights will depart from Sendai Airport on Saturday, July 21, Thursday, July 26, Tuesday, July 31, and Sunday, August 5 at 8:00 p.m., cross the international dateline, and arrive at Honolulu International Airport the same day at 8:35 a.m.
