Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Monday, 10 August 2009

Hawaiian Airlines has relaunched its popular “Take a Mate” air fares from 20 destinations in Australia to Hawaii, enabling two people to travel together to Honolulu using just one fare.

Priced from A$1360 for two people ex Sydney and A$1710 for two people ex Melbourne and Brisbane, including taxes, the deal enables each passenger who buys this fare to take a mate with them.

On sale for just this one week, the encore “Take A Mate” fares coincide with a major sales drive by Hawaiian Airlines, with sales teams visiting a range of travel agencies in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane throughout this week.

The “Take s Mate” fares are available for departures from until 28 August, then from 17 October until13 December, and again from 13 January – 10 March, 2010. All travel must be booked and paid for by 17 August.

“When we first introduced “Take a Mate” earlier this year, these fares became the most popular we have ever offered in our five years in this market,” said Sherilyn Robinson, Hawaiian Airlines General Manager, Sales and Marketing, Australia.

“Now they’re back by popular demand – and right at the time that the Australian dollar is once again climbing above 80 US cents,” Ms Robinson added. “So now is definitely the time to take a mate to Hawaii – or if you loved this deal last time, then take another mate!”

As well as providing a welcome escape from chilly Australia in winter or spring, the extension of these fares into January, February and March 2010 makes them a great and different gift idea for Christmas or even for Valentine’s Day on Sunday, 14 February, possibly eliminating the need for last minute gift shopping.

As well as offering a bargain price, the “Take a Mate” fares, in Economy Class, include taxes, meals, drinks and mainscreen entertainment on Hawaiian’s flights between Sydney and Honolulu.

In addition, Hawaiian offers every passenger a generous free luggage allowance of two checked items, each weighing up to 32 kilograms.
As well as from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, “Take A Mate” fares also are available from 17 other destinations around Australia.

Not all seats are available at these prices, and some travel agents may charge additional service fees. Some conditions also apply. There are no shoulder or high seasons for this fare.

Hawaiian Airlines flies nonstop from Sydney to Honolulu every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evening, with connections from throughout Australia with partner airlines.
