Island Air Expands College Student Standby Program

Hawaii college students starting the new semester can start planning their next inter-island getaway with Island Air’s expanded College Student Standby Program. 

Students enrolled in Hawaii Pacific University (HPU), Chaminade University of Honolulu and Brigham Young University-Hawaii (BYUH) now have the opportunity to standby for any Island Air inter-island flight for $45 each way.

Island Air launched its college standby fares last October as a pilot program available to students enrolled at University of Hawaii (UH) schools and community colleges on Oahu and Maui.

As Island Air added routes to Lihue and Kona, the standby program was expanded to include all universities and community colleges in the UH system. The program’s popularity among UH students, along with growing requests from students at other Hawaii universities led Island Air to extend the standby fares to HPU, Chaminade and BYUH students.

To qualify for the College Student Standby rate, students must present a valid University of Hawaii, Hawaii Pacific University, Chaminade University or Brigham Young University-Hawaii student identification to a customer service agent at any Island Air ticket counter. There is no maximum number of times a student may participate in the offer.
