WILMINGTON, Del. – Priceline and Hawaiian Airlines are announcing today the launch of Hawaiian’s HA Channel+ content through Priceline’s storefronts. Priceline will connect to Hawaiian using HA Connect, Hawaiian’s NDC API which will enable Priceline to provide its guests with all of Hawaiian Airlines' published fares and air ancillaries in addition to other exciting content.
The new connection offers competitive and robust content from Hawaiian Airlines while providing access to the best available fares and ancillaries such as Hawaiian’s Extra Comfort Seats to Priceline’s customer base. Additional benefits of this new connection include:
- Content Advantage
- Continued access to public fares for travel wholly within the Hawaiian Islands.
- Access to the best available published fares and ancillary pricing that Hawaiian Airlines has to offer including access to personalized, dynamically priced content.
- No Surcharges
- As of May 31, 2022, for U.S. points of sale Hawaiian Airlines began applying a Distribution Cost Recovery surcharge to legacy channels. With this connection, Priceline ensures its customers can access the best fares without the surcharge fees applied.
“Hawaiian Airlines is pleased to be working with Priceline to integrate HA Channel+, and to extend a new content program and its benefits to customers booking with Priceline,” commented Theo Panagiotoulias, SVP Global Sales & Alliances for Hawaiian Airlines.
“We are excited to launch the HA Channel+ on Priceline. By partnering with Hawaiian Airlines and offering their NDC content, we are able to fulfill our corporate mission to provide access to the best travel deals for our customers,” said Brigit Zimmerman, Chief Commercial Officer for Priceline.
