United to invest in Hawaii

The US mega airline United is about to splash $200 million on upgrades to major Hawaiian airports over the next ten years, according to local media reports. 

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser advised that the airlines CEO Oscar Munoz says the huge investment will be used to modernise the tools and resources employees can use at airports throughout Hawaii in the order to give customers a better experience.

The airline will also amend schedules at seven of the carriers major hubs which will make it easier for passengers to connect to the Hawaiian Islands.  The carrier is expected to launch the scheduling change at the Denver airport in February.

According to the Hawaii Tourism Authority, United has added 11 new routes and 363,522 seats in the state from 2017-18. The airline expects to have nearly 12,000 flights operating in Hawaii this year.
