Hawaiian Airlines was incorporated on January 30, 1929 under the name Inter-Island Airways Ltd.
Now in its 84th year of continuous service, Hawaiian Airlines is Hawaii's biggest and longest-serving airline and is the only carrier flying between the U.S. mainland and Hawaii to offer complimentary meals during meal time in coach class, as well as a complimentary glass of red or white wine.
Hawaiian Airlines offers nonstop service to Hawaii from more U.S. gateway cities (11) than any other airline, along with service from Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, American Samoa, and Tahiti. New nonstop service will begin between Honolulu and Taipei, Taiwan on July 9, 2013 and, subject to government approvals, between Honolulu and Beijing, China in April 2014.
Hawaiian also provides approximately 160 jet flights daily between the Hawaiian Islands, utilising a new fleet comprising Boeing 717, Boeing 767 and Airbus A330 aircraft - one of the youngest of any airline.
