As part of Island Air's new College Student Standby Program, the airline is offering students enrolled at University of Hawaii campuses on Oahu and Maui the opportunity to stand by for any flight on any day for $35 each way.
The College Student Standby Program is available to all students currently enrolled at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, University of Hawaii West Oahu and six community institutions (Honolulu Community College, Kapiolani Community College, Leeward Community College, Maui College, Lanai Education Center and Windward Community College) who are traveling between the islands of Oahu, Maui and Lanai.
To qualify for the College Student Standby rate, students must present a valid University of Hawaii student ID and their state or federal ID card or passport to a customer service agent at the Island Air ticket counter. There is no maximum number of times a student may participate in the offer.
As the state’s affordable alternative airline, Island Air is constantly building new programs that enhance its value and services.
“We support our student communities and know how important it is to have a reliable, affordable connection to family and friends, especially for holidays,” said Dave Pflieger, CEO of Island Air, in a written release. “We are testing this program with the University of Hawaii schools on Oahu and Maui for a limited time. The fare is an additional way that Island Air demonstrates its commitment to providing an economical, quality travel experience.”
