We are pleased to see our presence grow in Southeast Asia with the addition of Penang and Langkawi to our growing network. flydubai remains committed to opening up underserved markets and with the start of our daily service, we look forward to offering our passangers more opportunities to explore the beautiful regions, says Sudhir Sreedharan – Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations (UAE, GCC, Africa and the Indian Subcontinent) at flydubai.

flydubai is the first carrier to serve the airports in Langkawi and Penang with a daily service from Dubai. The airline will touch down in Penang at the Penang International Airport (PEN). For those looking to fly to Langkawi, the airline touches down at Langwaki International Airport (LGK).

In addition to these two beautiful destinations, travellers can also explore Krabi and Pattaya in Thailand through flydubai. flydubai is set to operate its latest crafts to these routes.

Hawaiian Airlines’ Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner Welcomes First Guests!

Hawaiian Airlines has just marked the arrival of the inaugural flight of its new flagship aircraft, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. The airline, which is celebrating 93 years in 2024 is is the largest operator of commercial flights to and from the island state of Hawaii. Additionally, the airline is also the 24th-largest commercial airline in the United States.

The inaugural flight for Hawaiian Airlines’ new flagship aircraft Aircraft N781N has been named named Kapuahi. This name directly translated to a star known as Aldebaran in Western astronomy.

Today marks an incredible achievement for all of us at Hawaiian Airlines and I’d like to thank all of our teammates, Boeing and our many partners for helping us make this moment possible. Our 787-9 is a true flagship product that, when paired with the award-winning hospitality of our crew, will provide guests with an unforgettable Hawaiʻi travel experience, says Peter Ingram – president and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines.

The guests of the inaugural Hawaiian Airlines flight also had the lucky chance to be the first to watch the brand new safety video on the airline. The tag-line ‘Aloha and welcome aboard’ welcomes the passengers, as the crew talks through the safety procedures. The safety video also showcases the beauty of Hawaii, allowing travellers a first glimpse into the beautiful island.

A Look Into the Cabins of Hawaiian Airlines

The 34 Leihōkū (garland of stars) suites of the airline features lie-flat seating. With this, Hawaiian Airlines welcome travelers with an 18-inch in-flight entertainment screen, as well as personal power outlets, wireless cell phone charging, and direct aisle access. The suites also offers privacy or a shared experience, allowing couples to fall asleep.

The main cabin consists of 266 Collins Aerospace Aspire seats with ergonomically contoured back and armrests. This seat can be maximized into a living space, offering more shoulder and hip room. Additionally, the cabin also features a 12-inch seatback monitor with USB-A and USB-C charging ports. Main Cabin guests can also select from 79 Extra Comfort seats to enjoy more legroom and access to AC power outlets.
