Hawaiian Airlines Ends Mileage Expiration
Hawaiian Airlines is offering its loyalty members a lifetime of flexibility to earn, save and redeem HawaiianMiles by eliminating its mileage expiration. Effective today, HawaiianMiles members no longer have to worry about posting account activity within 18 months to preserve their miles.
“Removing mileage expiration is one of many changes we’re making to better serve our guests and members. The hard times we have gone through as an airline have challenged us to ask ourselves how we can be an even better airline, for our guests, our employees and our communities,” Avi Mannis, senior vice president of marketing, wrote in an email to HawaiianMiles members. “We are committed to emerging from this crisis a stronger airline, even more deeply committed to guests and our purpose of connecting people with aloha.”
Hawaiian first paused HawaiianMiles expiration in March 2020 (through Dec. 31, 2020) to assist members unable to travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic and government travel restrictions. The carrier later eliminated change fees, offered HawaiianMiles members the ability to redeem miles for a pre-travel COVID-19 test, and made it easier to reach Pualani Gold or Pualani Platinum status by cutting qualifications requirements in half.
