Holiday bookings from Australia to Hawaii have soared to near-record levels for Hawaiian Airlines following its introduction this week of new “Take a Mate” air fares, which enable two travellers to fly from Sydney to Honolulu from just A$1360.

Sherilyn Robinson, Sales and Marketing Manager Australia for Hawaiian Airlines said, “We’re ecstatic that these fares have been so popular in the first week of a two week sale – but we’re even happier that such strong results for Hawaii and Hawaiian have been achieved in the toughest sales climate ever experienced by the Australian travel industry.”

“Not only are we facing fierce competition from airfare wars between Australia and Los Angeles. We’re also competing with very strong offerings from destinations throughout Asia and the Pacific,” she added.

A number of hotels have also added value to their own offerings, reducing rates or introducing bonus inclusions to coincide with Hawaiian’s “Take a Mate” fares and recent strengthening of the Australian dollar against the US currency.

Priced from $1360 ex Sydney and $1700 ex Melbourne and Brisbane, the “Take a Mate” deal enables each passenger who buys this fare to take a second person with them.

The “Take a Mate” fares are available for departures made before24 September, and again from 7 October until 16 December. All travel must be booked and paid for by 22 June.

Hawaiian flights depart Sydney at 9.20pm, crossing the international dateline and arriving at 11.10am the same day – a flight time of approximately 10 hours.
