The United Island Hopper

Do you have what it takes and are you up for a Challenge. This flight is now done in a Boeing 737-800. So why not try flying it in a DC-6 aircraft. This is 1 of the 2 aircrafts that was used back when this route was started.

 

United’s Island Hopper Adventure is a remarkable journey that takes travelers across the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean, connecting seven remote islands in just 15 hours. Operated by United Airlines, this unique service shuttles passengers from Honolulu to Guam, making stops at various Pacific islands along the way. The Island Hopper was initiated in 1968 by Air Micronesia, affectionately known as “Air Mike.” Initially, the service utilized a Boeing 727-100 and Douglas DC-6B aircraft. The route was essential for serving remote communities, providing them with vital resources and connecting them to the rest of the world.
