Longest domestic flight in US will take off again in December

Uncertain future for airline pilots

Although, airlines have put in place multiple safety protocols passenger volume is still down by 70%. Those in the airline business are hopeful that a vaccine may help but even then they think normalcy may be far away.

Hawaiian Airlines is bringing the longest direct flight in the U.S. back to the skies.

Earlier this week, the airline announced it will be resuming regular flights to and from Boston starting in December. 

Hawaiian Airlines will operate two weekly flights to Boston's Logan International Airport from Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, on Mondays and Fridays starting Dec. 18, according to its website. 

The two weekly returning flights from Boston to Honolulu will be on Sundays and Wednesdays, beginning Dec. 20.
