Alaska Airlines to Offer Vacations to Hawaii

Alaska Airlines has acquired assets of Anchorage-based Hawaiian Vacations, in an effort to offer Alaskans travel services to Hawaii. The carrier is now taking reservations for Hawaii vacation packages, which begin departures in conjunction with Alaska Airlines' daily Anchorage-Honolulu flights, beginning December 9. Such packages also will launch with Alaska Airlines' new flights between Seattle and Honolulu, which begin October 12, as well as with the start of services between Seattle and Lihue on Kauai October 28.

Alaska Airlines expects the acquisition to close later this month, with the agreement going into effect January 13, 2008. Under the agreement, Hawaiian Vacations will no longer market Hawaii vacation packages or charter flights. Hawaiian Vacations reservations through January 12 are not affected, but for travel starting January 13, flights will be transitioned to those of Alaska Airlines. Packages are now available at [www.alaskaair.com] or by calling 800-ALASKAAIR. Visit [www.alaskaair.com] or [www.hawaiianvacations.com].
