The following baggage fees apply to luggage that meet the below requirements:
Baggage rules will apply based on a single carrier's rules for the entire journey subject to DOT regulations that govern which airline's rules will apply on a single ticket.
*Restrictions may apply. As a member benefit, HawaiianMiles members will enjoy reduced 1st and 2nd checked baggage fees when flying between the Neighbor Islands, traveling wholly within the State of Hawaii. For example, a ticket from Honolulu (Oahu) to Kahului (Maui) is considered a Neighbor Island ticket, and therefore, Neighbor Island bag fees apply. A ticket from JFK to Kahului with a connection in Honolulu will be considered a North America ticket, and therefore, North America bag fees apply. Discount applies to confirmed Hawaiian Airlines revenue tickets and flight award tickets redeemed with HawaiianMiles. Discount is applicable on any fare class ticket. Baggage discounts will only be applied when your HawaiianMiles number is present in your reservation, or added prior to completing the check-in process.
Purchasing tickets through codeshare partners: In compliance with DOT regulations, Hawaiian Airlines must be the marketing carrier on your itinerary to assure that this benefit is applied (i.e. ticket shows a Hawaiian Airlines flight number for the first flight on the ticket). If you are a member of HawaiianMiles and another airline’s frequent flyer program, your HawaiianMiles number must be the only frequent flyer number present in your reservation, to be eligible for the baggage discount. This also means you will be earning HawaiianMiles for your entire itinerary; mileage credit will not be posted to any other frequent flyer program.
*Pualani Platinum members receive the first three (3) bags complimentary. Applies to members only. Applicable overweight and excess baggage fees will apply. The next additional bag will be charged at the 4th bag fee.
*Pualani Gold members receive the first two (2) bags complimentary. Applies to members only. Applicable overweight and excess baggage fees will apply. The next additional bag will be charged at the 3rd bag fee.
Hawaiian Airlines World Elite MasterCard:The Primary Card member is eligible to earn one (1) complimentary first checked bag on Hawaiian Airlines-operated flights. International flights are excluded. Offer is also not valid for codeshare flight segments operated by Hawaiian Airlines and marketed by other airline partners. All ticket purchases (original and exchanges) must be made with the Hawaiian Airlines World Elite MasterCard premium product and purchased directly from Hawaiian Airlines. HA Vacation Package purchases do not qualify as direct purchases from Hawaiian Airlines. Applicable overweight and excess baggage fees will apply. The one (1) complimentary checked bag is valued at the first checked bag fee ($15 for flights purchased on/after March 10th, 2014). Any additional checked bags will be charged at the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. baggage fee.
Elite Members and Premier Club Members who are also the primary cardholder of the Hawaiian Airlines World Elite MasterCard, will receive one (1) complimentary checked bag in addition to their membership baggage allowance when purchasing Domestic or Neighbor Island tickets directly from Hawaiian Airlines using their Hawaiian Airlines World Elite MasterCard. The one (1) complimentary checked bag is valued at the first checked bag fee ($15 for flights purchased on/after March 10th, 2014). Any additional checked bags above your total allowance will be charged at the next sequential bag fee. For example, a Pualani Platinum member who is also a Primary Cardmember and checks in five (5) bags will get their first four (4) bags complimentary and then will be charged at the 5th bag fee for the fifth bag.
