Hawaiian Airlines has intensified the competition for
travel to the US mainland with its new range of “Catch the Wave” air
fares from Australia - now reduced by almost $200 and with more
advantages thrown in.
From only $965 per person, plus taxes of $365,
travellers can fly from Sydney to Honolulu , then on to one of
seven destinations on the US mainland - Las Vegas, Los Angeles,
San Francisco, San Diego, San Jose, Seattle or Sacramento - then
home from the same city or another.
In addition to extending this fare for travel
until 9 December 2009, Hawaiian also offers a
convenient US Customs arrival point, with flights from Australia
landing in Honolulu mid-morning, after the peak arrival period.
“Entering the USA in Honolulu is an easy and convenient option
for Hawaiian Airlines passengers from Australia, as theirs is one
of the few long haul flights to arrive mid morning,” said Sherilyn
Robinson, Sales and Marketing Manager Australia for Hawaiian
“Once they clear US Customs, travellers can stay
in Hawaii, then fly on to the mainland later, or connect within
hours to an onward Hawaiian service to the mainland, where there
are no further arrival formalities.”
In addition to the
immigration convenience, Hawaiian’s passengers have the ability to
fly from Honolulu to one US mainland destination and depart from
another, enabling them to maximise their American holiday
“No other carrier from Australia to the USA can
offer three cities for the price of one – two mainland
destinations plus Honolulu,” added Ms Robinson.

fares from Australia meals, refreshments and main screen
entertainment, plus one of the most generous free baggage
