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.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
