Hawaiian Airlines has announced plans to upgrade its Sydney-Honolulu service to larger Airbus A330-200 aircraft by May next year.

Hawaiian this week became the only carrier operating daily services between Sydney and Honolulu, using Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. Moving from five flights per week to daily service boosted available seats by 40 per cent, or 12,000 seats per year, the airline said

With 294 seats, the A330s will be able to carry 30 more passengers than the 767, upping capacity by another 11 per cent.
