HU-LA-LA! Hawaiian Expands Special

Hawaiian Airlines has again stepped up air fare competition between Australia and the US mainland, extending and expanding its “Hula Your Way to the USA” fares to 10 mainland destinations, via Honolulu.

The latest range of Hula fares, which start at AUD$1325 per person, including tax, enable passengers to fly from Sydney to their choice of Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, San Jose, Seattle and Sacramento, plus the three new options of Oakland, Portland and Phoenix.

“Our Hula fares are a great option for Australians planning to visit the USA, as they can enter the mainland through one city, fly home from another, and stop in Hawaii as well,” said Sherilyn Robinson, Hawaiian Airlines Sales and Marketing Manager Australia.

“Think of the opportunities – you could land in San Francisco, then rent a car and drive to Los Angeles and the Anaheim theme parks; fly to Sacramento, then drive to the nearby skifields; or fly to Las Vegas for the bright lights and the big shows, then take a road trip back to California, before flying home via Hawaii.”

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. Hawaiian also offers every passenger a generous free luggage allowance of two checked items, each weighing up to 32 kilograms.

In addition to fares from Sydney, Hawaiian – in conjunction with domestic airline partners - offers Hula fares to travellers from 19 other destinations around Australia:

* From AUD$1475 (including taxes) ex Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Maroochydore, Canberra, Ballina, Hervey Bay, Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie.
* From AUD$1665 ex Adelaide, Albury, Hobart, Launceston, Cairns, Mackay, Proserpine, Rockhampton and Townsville.
* From AUD$1825 ex Perth.

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

All travel must be booked and paid for by 18 September. 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.
