Following Hawaii Governor Ige’s order mandating a quarantine for any person arriving in the State of Hawaii, the state’s largest carrier announced that Hawaiian Airlines is to cease most flights this week.
Virtually every airline right now is allowing customers to make changes during specific timeframes free of charge. But, Southwest already allows this, so they’re taking things a step further – Southwest is waiving fare differences AND is extending expiration dates!
A LOT has changed over the weekend. So, let’s talk about the changing COVID-19 landscape, its impacts on travel, and my thoughts on everything that’s going on.
So far, all my coronavirus coverage has revolved around airlines. But, hotels (obviously) play a large role in travel too. So here’s what you need to know about hotels and COVID-19. That said, airlines are loosening rules more too.
Well, it’s another week and the COVID-19 news continues to worsen. As a result, Hawaiian suspends more routes, while some airlines step-up their cleaning regimes. But, not all are doing the same.
New COVID-19 cases continue to appear at a rate of several hundred per day. That outpaces China’s rate of new cases! And, as a result, Korean carriers reduce Hawaii capacity – FINALLY.
