'Spend More on Gifts, Less on Airfares!'

HONOLULU -- With the holiday travel season just weeks away, Hawaiian Airlines has introduced special online “Mele Fares” offering discounts for nonstop flights to its popular West Coast destinations starting as low as $310, a bargain for one of the year's peak travel periods.

Roundtrip travel must originate from Hawaii, with departures leaving December 17 – December 25, 2004, and the return flights from December 28, 2004 – January 7, 2005. Flight reservations can be booked online at HawaiianAirlines.com.

“The holidays are typically a busy and expensive time to fly but our online specials present a great reason to visit family and friends on the mainland,” said Gordon Locke, Hawaiian's senior vice president of marketing and sales. “This is a way to spend more on gifts and less on airfare.”

The Mele Fares online specials are available only to members of HawaiianMiles, Hawaiian's frequent flyer awards program. Enrollment is free, fast, and there are no obligations or annual fees. New members can sign up online and utilize the savings immediately.
