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.
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.
While things appear to be improving a little in China, the novel coronavirus is spreading elsewhere around the world. And we’re now beginning to see further impacts from the situation as Hawaiian suspends flights amid COVID-19 concerns.
Following up on my post about inter-island flight pricing the other week, today I’m taking a look at Hawaii-West Coast pricing observations. And, the results weren’t quite what I expected.
Hawaii’s air travel market saw a major shakeup last year. And, as a result of the increased competitive pressures, Hawaiian Air saw a net income decline in 2019.
Recently, I was looking at flights between Honolulu and Kahului and made some interesting Intra-Hawaii flight pricing observations that can help you save money whether you fly Hawaiian or Southwest.
