Aloha Friday Wrap: Kauai and Oahu in one trip, Hawaiian Airlines’ newest sustainable partnership + MORE!

In need of some positive, uplifting news and tips amid the current travel climate? Say ‘aloha’ to this wrap.

Two holidays in one: Kauai and Oahu

With six islands open for exploration in Hawaii, combining at least two of them into an itinerary can prove to be a beautiful, contrasting experience.

It’s worth your clients considering a Kauai-Oahu holiday combination – it’s like having two Hawaii vacations in one!

Kauai presents a country escape with unmatched natural scenery, almost-deserted beaches, and a raft of rural offerings. Oahu provides a sun-kissed urban adventure with premier shopping, dining and nightlife opportunities.

Enable your clients to enjoy the best of both islands together with this nine-day itinerary.

Arts and culture are very alive and well across the Hawaiian Islands.

Here are four events your clients wouldn’t want to miss while getting acquainted with the spirit of aloha.
