HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaiian Airlines canceled dozens more Neighbor Island flights Friday amid recertification issues.

The carrier said they planned to cancel 32 flights Friday. That came on the heels of 19 cancellations Thursday.

The airline told Hawaii News Now that pilot training for recertification had been delayed. The company’s flight simulator ran into problems in recent months and the airline was unable to recertify pilots, officials said.

raining is now underway and the simulator has been fixed.

In place of the canceled flights, Hawaiian is planning to substitute their smaller aircraft with larger planes to rebook passengers and ensure travelers get to their destinations. They do plan to complete 119 flights around the state Friday.
