Hawaiian Airlines has just announced it will suspend service between Honolulu and Orlando starting September 7, 2022.

According to ClickOrlando, Carolyn Fennel, senior director of public affairs for Orlando International Airport, said the airline cited staffing issues and current fuel prices as reasons for the suspensions.

If you have already booked a flight between Honolulu and Orlando on Hawaiian Airlines, refunds are expected to be issued for any flights booked after September 7.

The good news is that other major airlines will have continued service to and from Orlando International Airport including JetBlue, Frontier, American Airlines, United, Spirit, and more. For more information on which airlines and flights are available at Orlando International Airport, visit the official website here.

Additionally, although Walt Disney World Resort’s four theme parks — Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios — have officially swapped out the free FastPass system for the paid Lightning Lane model, Orlando International Airport (MCO) is still offering their own version of a FastPass to both Disney World Guests and other Florida travelers.

If you have plans to fly through MCO in the near future and are interested in using the security reservation lane, you can visit CLEAR’s official website to learn more about the offering, which is also available at other airports throughout the United States.
