US Airline Cutting Service to Hawaii due to Pilot Shortage

19th Apr 2022

US based Sun Country Airlines has announced that it is cutting its service to Hawaii for the rest of the year “due to the current pilot shortage impacting all U.S. airlines”.

“Anticipating that we will continue to be operationally constrained by workforce shortages, including crew, Sun Country is adjusting our summer flying schedule to align better with staffing and aircraft availability. We are eliminating service to Fairbanks and Honolulu – two long-haul flights that will also save on high fuel costs. We apologize to our guests for the change.” Wendy Burt, Sun Country Airlines spokesperson told KHON2.

Hawaii has been dealing with a number of flight interruptions with Hawaiian Airlines cancelling a number of flights over the easter weekend due to pilot training and simulator constrains.
