Pack your bags! As of today, May 6, 2020 you can now fly directly from Charlotte, NC to Honolulu, HI. The American Airlines flight is the first direct flight to Hawaii out of Charlotte. This is a great option for travelers going into the summer.

All passengers on the inaugural flight received a lei before boarding according to the CLT Airport Twitter account.

If Hawaii wasn’t enticing enough before a direct flight makes it even more appealing. I might need to book this trip sooner rather than later.

Charlotte is the second-largest American-Airline’s hub so adding this flight makes perfect sense. We are also one of the busiest airports in the country. Air travel continues to increase in volume as restrictions are loosening.

Airport safety protocols are currently still in place. Face masks are required on all Airport property and social distancing is encouraged.
