HAWAII: Hawaiian Airlines And South African Airways Partner In New Interline Agreement

South African Airways and Hawaiian Airlines established a new interline agreement providing new and convenient flight options for both SAA and Hawaiian customers traveling between the Hawai’ian Islands and South Africa.

The partnership offers increased convenience to customers by allowing travel on one single ticket and through interline baggage transfer upon check-in with either SAA or Hawaiian Airlines in the United States or Southern Africa.

This new interline partnership enable SAA and Hawaiian Airlines to broaden their route networks to provide some of the fastest connections between Hawai’i and destinations throughout Africa, said Todd Neuman, executive vice president, Americas, South African Airways.

Our mutual customers will enjoy the warm traditional South African and Hawai’ian Island hospitality throughout their journey from two award-winning airlines.

With immediate effect, customers can purchase a single itinerary for travel on flights of both carriers allowing passengers to enjoy connections via New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport between Hawaiian Airlines’ neighbor island network in Hawai’i and in more than 75 destinations served by SAA.

JFK is a primary gateway for SAA in North America, with daily non-stop service to South Africa, allowing the new partnership to provide convenient connections.

Hawaiian Airlines flights from Honolulu, Hawai’i (HNL) to Johannesburg, South Africa (JNB) depart Hawai’i at 3:10 p.m., and arrive at JFK 6:55 a.m. the next morning. SAA serviced flights depart JFK 11:15 a.m., and arrive in JNB at 8:05 a.m., the next morning.

Flights from JNB to HNL depart JNB at 9 p.m. and arrive in JFK at 6:40 a.m., while flights serviced by Hawaiian Airlines depart JFK at 10 a.m., and arrive in Honolulu at 3:05 p.m.
