After the winter holiday, United Airlines will halt service to Hilo Airport on the Island of Hawaii’s east coast. The final service is scheduled for Jan. 7.
After the move, there will be no remaining nonstop flights from Hilo to the U.S. mainland. Hawaiian and Southwest will continue to serve Hilo numerous times daily with flights from Honolulu, while Hawaiian and commuter carrier Mokulele will continue connecting Hilo with Maui’s Kahului Airport.
Flyers will continue to have numerous nonstop options from the continental U.S. to Kona, the Island of Hawaii’s primary tourism center on the island’s west coast, approximately 75 miles from Hilo. United, Alaska, American, Delta and Southwest all fly from the mainland to Kona.
