Full-service flights to Hawaii from $785 return

Posted: 9 April 2018 3:31 pm

Say aloha to very special prices on Hawaiian Airlines.

Hawaiian Airlines is taking Aussies to Hawaii's beaches for hundreds less than its standard fares – but only for bookings made by 16 April.

Flights take off from either Sydney or Brisbane and start from just $785 return.

The cheapest destination is Honolulu; however, there are also sale fares to Kona, Lanai City and Ho'olehua from $893 irrespective of which city you plan to land in.

Where restrictions lie, and your decision to fly or not, is in the travel dates. These range from 18 April to 20 June only. For those in the know, this is actually an excellent time to travel, since Hawaii is blessed with sunshine and warm temperatures at this time. April and May in particular are considered shoulder months and are best for those avoiding the crowds of tourists. June starts to get a little busier, especially with the school holidays knocking on its doors, though you can still find reasonable hotel rates.

Make those public holidays work for you

As there are no blackout dates for this sale, you can also make the most of two public holidays in this period: ANZAC Day (25 April) and the Queen's Birthday (10 June for NSW). Who says you can't have a long weekend in Hawaii? Not us!

If you want a super short trip, you can leave on Saturday 8 June and return on Monday 10 June and pay $754 – which is even cheaper than advertised but does cut your trip to one full day and two half days. If you're happy to take extra days off, you can fly out on Saturday 8 June and return the following Sunday 17 June, giving you a nine-day break for $754 return while taking only four days of annual leave.

Play around with the airline's price chart and see what works for you.

Flying with Hawaiian Airlines not only affords you the full-service experience, but you'll also receive the luxury of packing 2 x 32 kilograms' worth of luggage with you. We're not sure how many bikinis or trunks that holds, but we reckon it's a fair few.

Book your holiday via the official Hawaiian Airlines website to secure your seat on board.

Just remember to get in before 16 April when the sale ends.

How good are these fares?

At the very best of times, we've seen Hawaiian Airlines flights plummet to $555 return; however, these are on specific routes and dates. This sale offers a much better range of routes and date options. On a more average day, you can only hope to find flights under $800 return, with fares more likely to be a touch under $1,000 return cementing this as one of the better sales to beat.

Sure, budget airlines can get you there and back for $487 return, but for the service, quality, luggage allowance and meals, an extra $300 can go a long way – especially if you're travelling to Hawaii for a special occasion.
