Hawaiian Airlines and Island Air launch interline e-ticketing

Travel News Asia 15 December 2004

Hawaiian Airlines has teamed up with Island Air to improve inter-island travel by introducing interline e-ticketing.

The new e-ticketing agreement further enhances the code share partnership established between the two carriers in August and makes flight connections to Molokai, Lanai, and West Maui more convenient.

Mutual customers of Hawaiian and Island Air having travel itineraries with flights on both airlines can now purchase a single e-ticket and check-in only once at the original point of departure.

Hawaiians agreement with Island Air means we have now extended the technology and convenience of paperless ticketing to travelers of all six islands, said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiians president and chief operating officer. Theres no unnecessary hassles, no messing with paperwork, and, most importantly, no waiting in check-in lines.

Interline e-tickets are now being issued by Hawaiian and Island Air through their respective reservation centers, at airport locations and ticket offices. In addition, e-tickets for Hawaiian are scheduled to be available at all domestic travel agencies by end of December.

Dunkerley added, Our goal is to convert our ticketing to 100 percent paperless and were getting close. The biggest e-ticketing conversions we still need to make are with international carriers and that will be accomplished by next year. 

Island Air is the latest carrier Hawaiian has launched an interline e-ticketing agreement. Previous e-ticketing arrangements include American, United, Northwest, Alaska, America West, ATA, Delta, and Continental.

Hawaiian also has plans to establish interline e-ticketing partnerships with a number of international carriers in 2005, including British Airways and Japan Airlines.
