Hawaiian offers change fee waiver for Northeast flyers

The Maui News

Hawaiian Airlines issued an advisory to its customers Monday that it would waive flight change fees for travelers flying to, from or via John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York between today and Wednesday, according to an announcement.

Eligible passengers are those holding tickets for travel on Hawaiian Airlines or on the airline’s code-share flights through the Kennedy airport. The offer permits a one-time reservation change. Changes must be made and reticketed for flights no later than March 21.

The waiver comes as the National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for most of New England and a winter weather advisory for New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The storm was expected to hit late Monday and continue through most of today, disrupting ground and air travel.

American Airlines announced that it had suspended all flight operations from Boston Logan International Airport on Tuesday because of the storm. The airline said arrivals and departures from Bangor, Maine; Burlington, Vt.; Manchester, N. H.; and New Haven, Conn., also will be shut down.

Amtrak said it is suspending service from Boston to New York’s Penn Station today until 11 a.m.

Hawaiian passengers were advised to check www.HawaiianAirlines.com for the latest updates on scheduled flights.

All changes must be made by calling Hawaiian’s Reservations Department at (800) 367-5320.
