TOKYOJapan Airlines' (JAL) low-cost long-haul subsidiary ZIPAIR, will launch flights to Honolulu from Tokyo — Narita International Airport.

The airline will carry out its first flight on Dec. 16. ZIPAIR will operate 16 roundtrip flights by the end of January 2021.

ZIPAIR will operate this route by a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner jet that was transferred from its parent JAL. The carrier will compete with All Nippon Airways on this route. ANA was operating three Airbus A380 aircraft between Tokyo and Honolulu before the pandemic.

The new service announcement comes more than a month after Hawaii expanded its pre-travel testing program to Japan. The program allows travelers to avoid a two-week quarantine if they provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken with a trusted testing provider no more than 72 hours before departure.

Travel restrictions, however, remain in place in Japan for certain visitors, including U.S. citizens.
