Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
HONOLULU — Hawaiian Airlines has announced a price hike on first and second checked bags on flights between North America and Hawaii.
The price has increased by US$5, to $30 for the first bag and $40 for the second. The change applies to main cabin tickets purchased or voluntarily changed beginning Nov. 13, 2018.
Hawaiian’s checked bag fee for neighbour island flying remains unchanged, as do discounts and complimentary allowances for HawaiianMiles members. Guests flying internationally may still check two bags at no charge.
Hawaiian’s current North America bag fees, which were last revised in 2012, will remain in place for guests travelling on tickets purchased through Nov. 12.
Additionally, Hawaiian Airlines World Elite Mastercard primary card members who purchase tickets between Hawaii and any of Hawaiian’s 12 North American gateway cities directly from Hawaiian Airlines will continue to enjoy one complimentary first checked bag.
