Hawai`i Spends $13m to Handle Super Jumbo Flights

HONOLULU, OAHU (Ben Caxton) — The State of Hawai`i spent $13 million making changes at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport so A380 “Super Jumbo” planes which seats 520 passengers could use the facility. For the money, Governor Ige got a VIP tour of a new jet All Nippon Airways will use to provide service between Honolulu and Tokyo. After two successful test flights of the plane, painted to resemble Honu, Hawaii’s green sea turtle, the airline showed off the plane and it’s two new $5 million passenger lounges at the airport to dignitaries. The carrier plans to add wide-body aircraft service four times weekly beginning May 24. The carrier also anticipates adding a second A380 to the Hawaii market in July and a third in 2020. Honolulu becomes the 11th city airport in the U.S. equipped for A380 operations.
