Hawaiian Airlines offers new service to Taiwan

HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaiian Airlines is offering new service to Taiwan.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser says the state's largest and oldest carrier is planning on launching service three days a week next summer between the capital city of Taipei and Honolulu.

The airline's announcement comes just two months after the United States said it would include Taiwan in the Visa Waiver Program. The program permits visa-free travel to the U.S. for eligible travelers visiting for 90 days or fewer for business or tourism. The program went into effect Nov. 1.

Hawaiian will become the only airline offering nonstop service between Taiwan and Honolulu when it begins flying in July.
