Overview of Hawaiian Airlines
Hawaiian Airlines began as Inter-Island Airways Ltd. on January 30 in 1929. Hawaiian Airlines is owned by Hawaii Holdings, whose current Chairman and CEO are Mark Dunkerley. Hawaiian Airlines is Hawaii's largest and longest-serving airline, having been in business for almost 90 years.
Hawaiian flies to Hawaii from more cities in the United States than any other airline. Not only that, this airline also has several flights from American Samoa, Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Korea and Tahiti. One of Hawaiian Airlines' significant events was the launch of a direct Boston-Honolulu route in April 2019, making it the longest scheduled domestic trip in US history.
Hawaiian Airlines Baggage Allowance Policy
Luggage is an essential component of every flight. Hawaiian Airlines has a reasonable baggage policy on domestic and international flights to help satisfy the necessary needs of each traveller. Cabin Zero will provide you with comprehensive information on each Hawaiian flight's luggage regulations in the article below.
Hawaiin enables you to bring one personal item and one standard bag for free in your carry-on luggage. If you want to carry hand baggage inside the cabin, make sure it fits within the authorised area and is no more than 22 x 14 x 9 inches (55.9 x 35.5 x 22.9 cm) and weighs no more than 25 pounds (11.34 kg).
Jackets, umbrellas, diaper bags, duty-free products, and assistance devices (wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, strollers, kid safety seats, and so on) are not included in your carry-on luggage but might be subject to a surcharge as checked baggage.
Depending on your destination, you can be charged varying luggage costs on Hawaiian flights. The checked baggage policy of Hawaiian Airlines enables you to bring two standard bags (a total of ten bags) with a maximum size of 62 inches or 157 cm (length, breadth, and height) and a maximum weight of 50 pounds or 23 kg, more specifically:
- Passengers travelling in the main cabin to neighbouring islands can purchase the 1st bag for $25, the 2nd one for $35, the 3rd one onwards for $50.
- Passengers travelling in the main cabin to North America can purchase the 1st bag for $30, the 2nd one for $40, the 3rd one onwards for $100.
- Passengers travelling on First Class tickets are permitted to check in the first 2 bags for free. The 3rd one will cost $50 if they’re travelling to neighbouring islands, $100 if they’re travelling to North America, or $150 elsewhere.
You will be charged an additional cost at the airport if any item of checked luggage exceeds the size or weight restriction. For flights to the islands, Hawaiian Airlines will charge roughly $50.00 USD per bag, $100.00 USD for North American trips, and $150.00 USD for international flights with three or more bags.
The excess baggage policy goes as follow:
- On flights to/from neighbouring islands, baggage weighing from 51-70 lbs (23 - 31 kg) will cost $35. Baggage from 71-100lbs (31 - 45 kg) will cost $70;
- On flights to/from North America, baggage weighing from 51-70 lbs (23 - 31 kg) will cost $50. Baggage from 71-100lbs (31 - 45 kg) will cost $100.
Baggage weighing more than 71 pounds or 33 kilograms is not permitted on flights to or from Australia or Papeete. Bags weighing more than 100 pounds (46 kg) will not be accepted as checked or hold baggage.
The answer is definitely yes. When you check in 24 hours before your journey, Hawaiian Airlines allows you to prepay for luggage online. You should check their site for further information and payment options.
Sports equipment such as skateboards, golf bags, fishing equipment, hockey and baseball equipment will be permitted and classified as checked baggage subject to Hawaiian Airlines' size and weight regulations. To carry them on the flight, you will have to pay additional expenses.
Depending on the origin and destination of the journey, Hawaiian Airlines customers will be charged different baggage costs. Joining the HawaiianMiles program, purchasing a first-class ticket, or opening the Hawaiian Airlines World Elite Mastercard and booking tickets via it can all help you save money on baggage costs.
Hawaiian lets you bring your pet in three different ways. You have three options: leave them in the cabin, check them in as luggage in a pressure-and-temperature-controlled room, or convey them as cargo in a pressure- and-temperature-controlled space.
