Hawaiian Airlines Introduces Curbside Check-In Service

HONOLULU, October 6, 1998-- Hawaiian Airlines, Inc. (ASE and PCX: HA) has added another convenient new service for its customers departing Honolulu on interisland flights: Curbside Check-In.

Travelers with Hawaiian Airlines interisland flight tickets, flight coupons, ATM flight coupons or HawaiianMiles Makana Checks can now check in for interisland flights at the curb directly in front of its ticket counter on the second level of the Interisland Terminal at Honolulu International Airport.

he new Curbside Check-In service complements Hawaiian's recently introduced Drive-Thru Check-In service in offering additional options and convenience to interisland travelers. Both are available to seven days a week, 4:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Hawaii Standard Time.

"This new service represents another step in Hawaiian's successful campaign to add speed and convenience to the airport experience for our customers, particularly those who may be dropped off at the terminal or are returning rental cars," said John Happ, Hawaiian's senior vice president of Marketing and Sales.

In March, Hawaiian Airlines began offering Drive-Thru Check-In at a newly built 1,400-square-foot weather protected facility on the mauka (mountain-facing) side of the Interisland Terminal.

To use that service, drivers entering Honolulu International Airport from the freeway should stay in the far right lane and turn left at the "Hawaiian Airlines Interisland Drive-Thru Check-In" sign.
