Hawaiian Airlines flies three times weekly from Brisbane to Honolulu as the carrier of choice to Hawaii. On board, guests enjoy Hawaiian’s famous signature mea ho’okipa (translation: I am host) hospitality – a warm celebration of the culture and Aloha Spirit of Hawaii. Fares on Hawaiian’s three flights per week include generous free checked baggage of 64kg per person (2 x 32kg bags), complimentary entertainment, drinks and meals designed exclusively by acclaimed chef Chai Chaowasaree.
In its 88th consecutive year of service, Hawaiian is Hawaii’s biggest and longest-serving airline and the leading provider of flights between Honolulu and beautiful neighbouring islands including Līhue, Kauai; Kahului, Maui; and Kona and Hilo, Hawaii Island (170 flights daily).
From Brisbane, Hawaiian also offers one-stop services via Honolulu to 11 US mainland cities including Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York City (JFK), Oakland, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose and Seattle.
