Continental is also adding a new daily flight from Maui's Kahului Airport to Los Angeles International Airport.

Meanwhile, the airline says it will also offer a second daily flight between Honolulu and Los Angeles.

Continental currently serves Hawaii with daily flights from New York, Houston and Guam. Beginning Dec. 18, the carrier will also operate twice-weekly service between Honolulu and Nadi, Fiji.
