Hawaiian Airlines announced an increase to its fuel surcharges in response to the continuing escalation in fuel costs resulting from record level oil prices. This is the second raise in fuel surcharges for Hawaiian in less than a month.
“The relentless rise in fuel costs leaves us with no choice but to pass some of these increasing costs on to the consumer,” said Keoni Wagner, Hawaiian’s vice president of public affairs.
Effective immediately, Hawaiian is adopting the following fuel surcharges for transpacific service between Hawaii and the following destinations:
Mainland U.S.: Increase of $20 each way, from $100 to $120.
Pago Pago: Increase of $20 each way, from $110 to $130.
Papeete: Increase of $20 each way, from $120 to $140.
The Honolulu/Manila increase of May 22 remains the same, when it was raised $35, from $115 to $150. There has been no change to the existing $100 surcharge from Manila to Honolulu.
