Hula Your Way to Mainland USA

Hawaiian Airlines has intensified competition between Australia and the USA, launching a range of hot new “Hula Your Way to the USA” fares to seven key mainland destinations– Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, San Jose, Seattle and Sacramento.

The new fares, which start from AUD$1325 per person ex Sydney, enable travellers to enter the US mainland through one gateway and fly home from another at very competitive prices. As well, passengers can stop over in tropical Hawaii.

“The Hula fares are a great new way to the US mainland,” said Sherilyn Robinson, Hawaiian Airlines Sales and Marketing Manager Australia.

“Hawaiian Airlines flies via Honolulu, which enables our passengers to clear US customs in Hawaii, then continue nonstop to their mainland destination with no further formalities on arrival,” said Ms Robinson.

“Our passengers can enjoy the best of both worlds, as we also offer the exclusive option of a stopover in Hawaii either on the way to the mainland, on the way home, or both,” she said.

The “Hula Your Way to the USA” fares, in Economy Class, include taxes plus meals, drinks and mainscreen entertainment on Hawaiian’s flights between Sydney and Honolulu.

In addition, Hawaiian offers each of its passengers travelling from Sydney a generous free luggage allowance of two checked items, each weighing up to 32 kilograms.

Hula fares can also be purchased from 17 other destinations around Australia:

•From AUD$1492 ex Gold Coast, Maroochydore, Canberra, Ballina, Hervey Bay, Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie.

•From AUD$1682 ex Albury, Adelaide, Hobart, Launceston, Cairns, Mackay, Proserpine, Rockhampton and Townsville.

•From AUD$1842 ex Perth.

The “Hula Your Way to the USA” fares are available for departures from now until 24 September and from 07 October until16 December, 2009, and again from 13 January until 31 March 2010.

All travel must be booked and paid for by 24 July, 2009. Not all seats are available at these prices, and some travel agents may charge additional service fees. Some conditions also apply.

Hawaiian Airlines flies nonstop from Sydney to Honolulu every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evening, with connections from throughout Australia with partner airlines. Hawaiian flights depart Sydney at 9.20pm, crossing the international dateline and arriving at 11.10am the same day – a flight time of approximately 10 hours.

Now in its 80th year of continuous service in Hawaii, Hawaiian is the state’s largest and longest-serving airline.
