Hawaiian Airlines offers free interisland flights for medical workers

Hawaiian Airlines is providing complimentary interisland flights for medical professionals this month to support the response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Partnering with Hawaii’s health care providers, including Hawaii Emergency Physicians Associated, The Queen’s Health Systems, Kaiser Permanente Hawaii, Hawaii Permanente Medical Group, Hawai’i Pacific Health and Diagnostic Laboratory Services,
the airline is working to facilitate delivering medical services to communities across the Aloha State.

“This virus has presented an unprecedented test for all of us who call Hawaii home, and we are glad to be able to support the exceptional and important work our medical providers are carrying out across our islands each day to meet our state’s health care needs and help us overcome this challenge,” Hawaiian Airlines president and CEO Peter Ingram said in a statement.

On April 4, Hawaiian began operating 16 daily roundtrip flights between Honolulu and Hilo and Kona on the Island of Hawaii, Kahului on Maui and Lihue on Kauai. The airline is also serving both Molokai and Lanai from Honolulu on Ohana by Hawaiian flights.

Additionally, Hawaiian has suspended service between Honolulu and Pago Pago on American Samoa for at least 30 days through April 23 at the request of the American Samoan government.
