Hawaiian Airlines Says Aloha to Change Fees for All Flights
Hawaiian Airlines is waiving change fees for most customers. Whether you try to reschedule inter-island travel or between Hawaii and the mainland or international destinations there will no longer be any change fees. The carrier, which has already been waiving change fees for guests who need to postpone their trip due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is extending the benefit to travelers across its entire network. This follows similar moves from United at first and then Delta and American Airlines.
“We know our guests’ plans change for a variety of reasons, and we want them to book a flight with confidence and the flexibility to travel when they are ready to take that special Hawai‘i vacation, visit friends and relatives or do business on our neighbor islands,” said Hawaiian Airlines President and CEO Peter Ingram in the press release.
Effective immediate, Hawaiian has eliminated change fees for guests who purchase tickets or redeem HawaiianMiles for Main Cabin, Extra Comfort or First/Premium Cabin Class seats. Main Cabin Basic guests, who enjoy the lowest fares between the U.S. mainland and Hawai‘i, can modify their flight date without a change fee for tickets purchased through the end of the year under the airline’s existing COVID-19 waivers.
