MLT Vacations Talks Hawaii Airlift

August 24, 2011 By: Jena Tesse Fox

It’s helpful to tour operators when they have direct access to seats on airplanes. MLT Vacations takes that idea to the extreme, with access to more than 80 percent of the air capacity between Hawaii and the mainland U.S.

“We manage and operate the Continental Vacations brand, Delta Vacations and United Vacations brand,” says Elizabeth Moriarty, MLT Vacations’ VP of product development. United recently started flying direct to Hilo on the Big Island, giving MLT more access to programs on outlying islands that visitors might otherwise have missed. Likewise, thanks to Alaska Airlines’ increased Hawaiian service, the tour operator can offer vacation packages using the airline due to codeshare agreements. “It’s all very good news for us, and we’re seeing very positive trends for our business to Hawaii year over year.”

As Hawaii’s tourism product continues to evolve at a rapid pace, Moriarty says that MLT is keeping up. “We have a broad scope of product and we always evaluate and can add additional hotel products,” she says. “We’ll be offering Disney’s Aulani, which opens this year.” MLT has also added more room categories to its portfolio, including upgrades that would normally be much harder for visitors to book. And the efforts seem to be paying off: “We’re seeing a good uptick in business,” Moriarty says.
