Hawaiian Airlines fare sale out of NYC, as low as $155 each way using your 25% Off Coach Roundtrip for Two from Hawaiian Airlines Signature Visa Discount

This post is a follow-up on my post from a few days ago for Hawaiian Airlines fare sale to/from NYC-JFK for $212 each way for a round-trip total of $445 including taxes. If you recall, I had written about earning 140K Hilton HHonors points using Hawaiian Airlines Visa credit card sign-ups and also another post about best uses of Hawaiian Airlines miles. One thing that I had totally missed out is that the Hawaiian Airlines Signature Visa credit cards also come with a Certificate that offers 25% Off Coach Round-trip for Two Between Mainland U.S. and Hawaii. I was reminded about the certificate when my new credit cards arrived in mail this morning.

So, it turns out, the NYC fare sale can be had for even less. In my test booking, I could get the fare for as low as $155 each way, per person when booking for two passengers using this discount certificate.


Unfortunately, as we can see in the above screenshot, by now, the lowest fare of $212 each way is already gone for most of the days within the valid travel dates of June 4th-30th, 2012. However, the fare is still low enough as compared to what you can find out of JFK, especially considering that this is a non-stop on a wide-body airplane, with excellent entertainment system, food and drinks. Plus, if you make use of the 25% discount certificate, it makes the deal even more attractive. Basically, this certificate gives you 50% discount off the 2nd passenger (or 50%-off companion, if that is easier to understand).

See the above pictures for steps to unlock the discount. Just go ahead and use this certificate and grab your summer getaway to Hawaii!

Please note that the this fare sale ends tomorrow, November 20.

Additional points to note about this new route:

• Roomy, New Wide-body Planes
• Complimentary Meals Curated by Hawaii’s own Chef Chai Chaowasaree
• State of the art In-Flight Entertainment
• Award-winning Hana Hou! Magazine

The attractive part is that flight times are also very conveniently scheduled with arrivals at 3pm into Honolulu and arrivals at 6am at JFK for the return flight.

Validity of the sale fare -

Travel Period: June 4th-30th, 2012

Booking Period: November 16th-20th, 2011

Plan your Hawaiian Getaway for next summer at this low price. I doubt you will find a better fare to Hawaii from the Big Apple, during the peak summer travel period.

The new route is non-stop, direct service between New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Honolulu that starts June 4th, 2012. This fare sale should entice the East Coasters looking for a tropical getaway next summer as well as Hawaiians searching for adventure in the Big Apple.
