Hawaiian Airlines Direct Flight from South Korea

Koreans are now going to be doing a lot more travel and spending in Hawaii due to the new direct flight Hawaiian Airlines has begun from Honolulu to South Korea.

And through May of this year the number of Korean visitors has increased 85% from the year before.

“For Hawaii it means that every visitor Korea spends an average of $238 a day, and their average stay is about six days,” said Hawaii Tourism Authority President and CEO Mike McCartney.

“It’s going to bring about $100 million in economic activity to the state, which at a time like this is especially valuable,” said Dunkerley.
