Fans of sunny beaches and a good Mai Tai can rejoice: Delta Air Lines has added service to Honolulu. Beginning in June 2019, Delta will launch a nonstop flight between Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport and Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.

The aircraft covering the Detroit-Honolulu route will be a Boeing 767-300ER, which features 25 fully flat-bed seats in Delta One, 29 seats in Delta Comfort+ and more than 150 seats in the main cabin.

Amenities will include Wi-Fi, free personal in-flight seatback TVs, and for those passengers who like to stay connected, power ports in every seat. The Detroit-Honolulu flight departs at noon and arrives in Honolulu at 3:43 p.m. local time.

With the addition of the Detroit-based flight, Delta now has nine U.S. gateways to Honolulu. Other connections are Atlanta, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Seattle, New York (JFK), San Francisco and Portland, Oregon.

The new Delta flight is just the latest connecting Hawaii to the rest of the United States. Southwest Airlines increased its flights to the islands earlier this year, and Hawaiian Airlines made news by announcing a record-breaking, nonstop route between Honolulu and Boston.
