Hawaiian Airlines launches Special Fare Promotion in Australia

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Monday, 10 March 2008

Hawaii has just become more affordable with Hawaiian Airlines new LeA LeA (Have Fun!) air fares from 20 Australian destinations to Honolulu and the tropical neighbour islands of Maui, Kauai and The Big Island of Hawaii.

The LeA LeA (Have Fun) fares start at just A$799 per person from Sydney to Honolulu, plus taxes of approximately A$360, which vary according to the date of travel and the destinations visited.

Hawaiian Airlines has also introduced LeA LeA (Have Fun) fares from other Australian destinations, in partnership with domestic airline partner Virgin Blue. 

Hawaii has always been attractive to Australians for its sun, surf, sightseeing and culture, said Sherilyn Robinson, Manager, Sales and Marketing Australia for Hawaiian Airlines. Combined with the strong Australian Dollar, these competitive new air fares also make Hawaii even greater value for money.

Ms Robinson said the airlines choice of Hawaiian terms such as LeA LeA reflected not only the deep local culture of Hawaii, but the airlines integral role in the Hawaiian community.

We are not just an airline flying to Hawaii, said Ms Robinson. We launched our services 79 years ago, linking the islands of Hawaii, and later the US mainland and international destinations. Our cabin crews are Hawaiian. Our inflight service is Hawaiian. No airline knows Hawaii like we do.

Bookings must be made by 2 May. Fares are subject to seat availability on the dates requested, and some conditions apply. For passengers connecting via Sydney with Virgin Blue, luggage can be checked all the way to Honolulu from the domestic point of embarkation, and a free shuttle service is provided for outbound passengers between the Virgin Blue terminal in Sydney and the international terminal.

Hawaiian Airlines is also a partner in Velocity, the Virgin Blue loyalty programme, enabling Velocity members to earn or redeem points on Hawaiian Airlines flights.
