Hawaiian Airlines Update 5 - 8:30 a.m. HST

HONOLULU, September 13, 2001 -- Hawaiian Airlines has been notified by the Federal Aviation Administration that airports are being reopened today. The company expects to resume flight operations on a limited basis this afternoon and return to full-schedule operations tomorrow.

Today's schedule of flights will be posted here and distributed to the news media late this morning.

Due to the unusually high volume of calls today, customers should expect unusually long wait times on the phone. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Activity at airports is also expected to be heavy. Hawaiian recommends that travelers confirm their flight arrangements with Reservations prior to going to the airport.

For booking and flight information, customers are asked to call the Reservations Department's special toll-free telephone number 1-888-222-1699, or 838-5444 on Oahu.
