Hawaiian already operates 31 flights a week to Japan, and received approval from the Department of Transportation earlier this year for a new slot at Haneda. It was the first U.S. carrier to serve the airport, starting in 2010.

“As the leading U.S. carrier for service between Japan and Hawaii, we are pleased to offer our guests convenient and effortless travel options by adding a third daily flight between Tokyo Haneda and Hawaii,” Theo Panagiotoulias, senior vice president of global sales and alliances at Hawaiian Airlines, said in a statement.

According to the airline, the new outbound flight, HA863, will depart HNL at 12:35 p.m. and arrive at HND at 5:15 p.m. the next day. The return flight, HA864, will leave HND at 8:15 p.m. and arrive in HNL at 8:10 a.m. the same day.

The flights will be operated by Airbus A330s, and you can read TPG’s review of the airline’s first class service here.

Since Hawaiian’s shift to more dynamic pricing earlier this year, you may find it challenging to find low-tier award seats on this route. Prices start at 40,000 miles in economy and 65,000 miles in business class if you start in Honolulu, but most dates are pricing at 50,000 miles and 130,000 miles in economy and business (respectively).

The HawaiianMiles loyalty program is a 1:1 transfer partner of American Express Membership Rewards, or you could also look to book through partner programs like Korean Airlines SKYPASS or JetBlue TrueBlue.
