Next time you're in Hawai‘i, consider island hopping. It's the best way to experience all that Hawai‘i has to offer. And with a new program offering lower rates for neighbor island travel, the idea of jumping from island to island may just be possible, after all.
Fly inter-island at an affordable rate all year long.
Hawaiian Airlines sent out e-mails today, announcing the "Neighbor Island Travel Plans." It's available only to HawaiianMiles members interested in locking in lower fares throughout a 12-month period, while supplies last. Customers can save up to 14 percent off its current lowest internet fares for nonstop travel between Honolulu and Kaua‘i (Lihue), Maui (Kahului) and Big Island (Kona and Hilo). If you're not a member, you can register on Hawaiian's site.
There are four plans from which to choose, ranging from $512 for four roundtrips to $4,588 for 60 one-ways. That's $64 per one-way segment with some restrictions for the My Favorite Island plan, to $76 per segment for Freedom, which is the largest unrestricted plan. The price includes a 7.5% U.S. tax, $3.70 segment fee and $2.50 TSA security fee.
Visit the Hawaiian Airlines site for more details, including advance booking requirements and blackout departure times. The travel plan is good towards non-stop flights only and for customers 12 years and older.
This comes at a time when Hawaiian's expanding its service throughout the world, most recently announcing a direct flight from Hawai‘i to New York. After 83 years of continuous service in the islands, Hawaiian has become the largest provider of passenger air service to Hawai‘i from the U.S. mainland, according to its site.
