Delta Air Lines Inc. said Wednesday it will add flights from Detroit and San Diego to Honolulu beginning in June.

The company said the routes restore flights that were cut from San Diego roughly 20 years ago and from Detroit in 2004.

The flight from San Diego will run daily, while the Detroit flight runs three days a week.

The company said it was able to add the routes because its combination with Northwest gives it enough passengers in each city to make the flights viable. Northwest has long maintained a hub in Detroit. Delta bought Northwest last year and has been integrating their operations.
