Hawaiian Airlines offers fare specials to mainland USA + agent incentive

Throughout the month of June, Hawaiian Airlines is allowing Australian travellers to combine a mainland USA journey with a Hawaii stopover and enjoy two great holidays for the price of one.

Hawaiian Airlines flies to 13 mainland USA cities from Honolulu. Hawaiian fares from Australia to Mainland USA permit one free stopover in Honolulu, allowing travellers to buy a multi-stop airfare for the price of a return airfare.

Hawaiian Airlines’ multi-stop mainland USA West Coast return fares start from just $1,079 from Brisbane and Sydney to Los Angeles and San Francisco; while East Coast return fares to Boston and New York City (JFK) lead in at $1,379.

Return flights from Brisbane or Sydney to Seattle start from just $1,339 and to Las Vegas from $1,535.

Hawaiian Airlines’ multi-stop Mainland USA sale fares are available for purchase and booking until 30 June 2019 for travel on specified periods for each destination as detailed on the airline’s ‘Australian Deals and Offers’ web page.

The sale is on until 30 June and is available through all channels and partners.

Andrew Stanbury, regional director of Hawaiian Airlines across Australia and New Zealand, said the promotion, in collaboration with Brand USA and Hawai‘i Tourism Oceania, recognises that a large proportion of the airline’s Aussie guests choose to combine mainland USA and Hawaiian holidays.

“Visitors to North America are increasingly seeing the benefits of travelling to the US mainland via Honolulu,” he said.

“It’s an attractive option to clear customs in Honolulu, with convenient connections onward or to stopover in Hawaii en route.

“Currently, the majority of our passengers travelling to the mainland are heading to Los Angeles, New York City or Las Vegas. With the addition of Boston in April this year, we now offer connections in Honolulu to 13 North American gateways.”

Hawaiian Airlines is also conducting a travel agent incentive promotion for the duration of the Mainland USA sale.

Book and ticket any Hawaiian Airlines airfare from Australia to Mainland USA during the month of June 2019 for the chance to win 200,000 HawaiianMiles.

The incentive is open to agents in Australia only. The prize will be announced at 2pm AEST on Friday 5 July 2019.

One prize will be awarded to the top-selling booking agent based on the number of qualified Hawaiian Airlines tickets booked and paid during the incentive period that meet the entry criteria.

The incentive is applicable to any booking made and paid in full by 11:59pm AEST on Sunday 30 June 2019 which is logged via the incentive website. Bookings made which are not logged via the incentive website will not be counted.

Entrants will receive one point for every Hawaiian Airlines ticket sold to mainland USA during the incentive period.

Tickets must be issued on Hawaiian Airlines ticket stock ex-Australia and include one of Hawaiian Airlines’ 13 mainland USA ports within the ticket itinerary. There is no cap on the number of entries per agent during the incentive period.

Check out the incentive flyer for more information.
