Hawaiian Airlines has notified all of our airlines that their flights have been cancelled as of today, January 3rd.”
It said flights between Hawaii and Europe are currently cancelled.
The company added: “Hawaiians are advised to consider rescheduled travel arrangements as we are still working through these logistics.
This decision is not due to any particular cause, but rather the fact that we are now in the process of re-assessing our operations on the Island.
However, it is still possible to book and return home via Maui and other destinations if you wish.”
The airline’s statement follows an online petition that garnered more than 1,500 signatures calling for a return to normal flights between the islands.
It comes just weeks after a number of Hawaiian airlines suspended flights on Monday because of the situation.
In a statement, Hawaiian said: “Hawaiias network is currently experiencing a major disruption, and we are currently in the midst of reopening operations.
We would like to thank our customers for their continued support and patience during this challenging time.
We have also confirmed that our staff have been working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
These are difficult times for our customers, our employees and our airlines, and this disruption is being felt throughout our network.”
“Our priority is to ensure we have all of the resources available to us in the most expeditious manner possible to get Hawaii back to full and regular operation,” it said.
There are still delays for flights between Australia and Hawaii due to Tropical Storm Okeanos ahead of the Easter holidays.
A spokeswoman for the Queensland State Government said: “[We] continue to monitor developments closely and will continue to provide support to our local communities as we prepare for the holiday season.”
