Hawaiian Airlines axe Beijing route

Hawaiian Airlines is the latest US airline cancelling or cutting down routes to China, as the trade war between the two countries escalates. Hawaiian has confirmed it is calling a halt to its Beijing that has been running since 2014

“These decisions are never easy and this one is especially difficult because we believe in China’s future as a robust market for the Hawaiian vacation experience and we will continue to market one-stop options to Honolulu from cities throughout China on our airline partners,” said Peter Ingram, the airline’s president and CEO.

The 278-seat Airbus A330-200 aircraft that had been deployed on the route will be used elsewhere on the airline's route network the airline said.
