Nonstop flights to Hawaii

Nonstop Routes Between the US and Hawaii

Knowing which cities have nonstop flights is helpful anytime you are planning award travel.  Since Hawaii is a popular goal for award travel, I wanted to post this info.  It’s a list of nonstop flights between the US and Hawaii broken down by airline and by island.

Keep in mind that some of these routes may be seasonal.  Also, not all routes are flown daily.  I make every effort to provide accurate information, but if you notice an error, please feel free to correct me.  This list is current as of October 2018.

I am going to break this down by airline.  The routes listed under each airline are the routes that the airline operates, but don’t forget about partner flights.  For example, if you see an Alaska Airlines route you like but you do not have Alaska miles, you redeem a partner airline’s miles (British Airways Avios or AAdvantage miles) for the flight.  Click here for the best ways to book Hawaii using partners that transfer from Chase Ultimate Rewards or Amex Membership Rewards.

These are all possible routes, but remember that award space is subject to availability.  If you are transferring points from a bank program such as Chase Ultimate Rewards or Amex Membership Rewards, do not transfer until you have confirmed availability for your dates and route!  Click here and here for more info about availability.

There are 5 Hawaiian airports with flights to and from the mainland US.

  • Honolulu (HNL)
  • Hilo (ITO)
  • Kona (KOA)
  • Maui (OGG)
  • Kauai (LIH)

Spend your money on helicopter tours, not plane tickets to Hawaii!

The number listed for each airport is the miles between Hawaii and that airport.  This is important to know because some frequent flyer programs have distance based pricing.
