American to launch new tropical nonstop flight from CLT this spring
American Airlines is launching a new route from Charlotte Douglas International Airport to Honolulu, Charlotte's first and only non-stop flight to the Hawaiian capital, in May.
The new flight starts on May 6th and will operate twice a week until June 2nd, according to American. On June 3, flights to Honolulu will depart daily through September 7.
Every flight to Honolulu is operated on a Boeing 777-200 with 273 available seats, according to American.
Earlier this month, American announced that it would expand its coronavirus testing program for the home.
The home testing program now includes passengers flying to domestic destinations that are subject to COVID-19 restrictions. That includes Hawaii.
Passengers can access LetsGetChecked COVID-19 tests at home for $ 129. LetsGetChecked recommends American Airlines passengers order their test kits five or more days prior to travel.
In the past few months, American has also launched an online tool that allows passengers to quickly search for COVID-19 restrictions by location.
At Charlotte Airport, passengers have returned to air traffic in recent months, after passenger traffic fell sharply in March and April due to the coronavirus pandemic.
And the airport expects an increase in travel over the Christmas period.
In August, the number of passengers leaving Charlotte Airport exceeded 1 million for the first time since March.
In October, the last available monthly report, nearly 1.4 million people boarded planes leaving CLT. For comparison: the airport reported almost 2 million in February.
