HONOLULU, March 19, 2003 -- In light of the military conflict in Iraq, Hawaiian Airlines announced today it is offering extra flexibility to those planning travel by waiving applicable reservation change fees.
The waiver applies to any ticketed reservation for travel on any Hawaiian Airlines scheduled service flight purchased within 90 days of today's start of military action. To receive the waiver, customers must contact Hawaiian's reservations department within 90 days of today or by their originally scheduled travel date, whichever is earliest. Travel can be rescheduled for any date through December 31, 2003. The waiver is good for one reservation change only. Additional reservation changes will require applicable fees.
Customers will be required to pay for any difference in fares that may result from a change. In addition, current refunds and cancellations policies remain in effect.
Reservation changes must be made by calling Hawaiian Airlines' Reservations directly at 838-1555 on Oahu, toll-free from the Neighbor Islands at 1-800-882-8811, and toll-free from the U.S. mainland at 1-800-367-5320.
Hawaiian Airlines provides up to 30 nonstop flights per day between nine Western U.S. cities and Hawaii, along with weekly service between Honolulu and American Samoa and Tahiti using a new fleet of state-of-the-art Boeing 767-300ER (Extended Range) widebody aircraft. The company also provides approximately 100 interisland flights per day connecting the six major islands of Hawaii, using a fleet of 13 all-new Boeing 717-200 narrowbody jets.
