Hawaiian Airlines began selling tickets Tuesday for its new nonstop service between
Honolulu and Taipei, Taiwan, which launches July 9 with flights offered three days weekly.
Pending government approval, round-trip fares for travel in July start at TWD 40,049 (or, as of Feb. 26, US $1,348.81) for travel originating in Taipei and $1,369 for travel originating in Honolulu.
Hawaiian also announced the launch of a new traditional Chinese-language website for travelers in Taiwan to book tickets at www.HawaiianAirlines.com.tw.
In addition, customers can book tickets by calling Hawaiian’s sales office in Taipei at +886-2-2508-0886. For English-speaking travelers, tickets can be purchased online at www.HawaiianAirlines.com, by calling Hawaiian’s Reservations Department toll-free at (800) 367-5320, or through any professional travel agent.
“Travelers on our Taipei route can count on us offering the best fares, a great schedule to make the most of their trip, and a genuine Hawaii travel experience with inflight service unmatched in the industry,” said Peter Ingram, Hawaiian’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer. “Taiwan is a fascinating place to visit and our customers in Hawai‘i and North America will enjoy the added convenience our new service offers to experience this exciting country and other parts of Asia.”
Along with being a vibrant center of culture and pop Chinese entertainment, Taiwan is known for towering mountains, lush forests, an abundance of scenic attractions, and warm weather year-round.
Beginning July 9, subject to Taiwan government approval, Hawaiian Flight HA 807 will depart Honolulu International Airport at 1:55 a.m. on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, cross the international dateline, and land at Taipei International Airport at 6:15 a.m. the following day.
Beginning July 10, the return Flight HA 808 will depart Taipei at 8:55 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, cross the international dateline, and arrive in Honolulu at 1:10 p.m. the same day.
Hawaiian’s customers flying to Taipei from any of its 11 gateway cities in North America can also take advantage of free stopovers in Hawaii, giving them added flexibility in planning trips.
Hawaiian will operate the Taipei-Honolulu route using its wide-body Airbus A330-200 aircraft, seating 294 passengers.
Members of HawaiianMiles, Hawaiian’s frequent flyer program, can immediately start earning and redeeming mileage for travel on the new route.
