Fewer Restrictions, More Flexibility
HONOLULU –- Hawaiian Airlines today responded to a competitor's fare sale by announcing a more user-friendly $39.50 one-way fare -- a 50 percent savings off its lowest fare -- on select interisland flights. Hawaiian's promotion comes with no blackout dates and offers greater booking flexibility for travelers statewide.
Booked online at HawaiianAirlines.com, Hawaiian's “First or Last Flight Special” offers a 50 percent discount off its $79 SuperSaver Fare on the airline's first departures each morning to Kahului, Lihue, Kona, and Hilo, as well as on all of its last flights of the day departing the Neighbor Islands to Honolulu. Purchased over the phone through Hawaiian Airlines Reservations, the fare is $48.25, a 40 percent discount off the SuperSaver Fare.
In order to provide greater schedule convenience, Hawaiian is not requiring travelers to use only first and last flights to take advantage of the special fare. The one-way nature of the offer allows travelers the option of flying round trip at half price using the first and last flights, or using the special fare in one direction and combining with a regular fare for returns on any flight.
Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian's president and CEO, noted, “We're offering interisland travelers statewide more flexibility and fewer restrictions – this is a fare people can actually use.”
The First or Last Flight Special is good for travel October 5 through December 31, 2005.
Whether booked online or by phone, ticketing must be completed at time of reservation confirmation. Seats are limited. Standard taxes and fees apply.
