Aloha to Aloha!

April 29, 2008

After 60 years of servicing the beautiful Hawaiian Islands, Aloha Airlines calls it quits. This came as quite an unexpected blow to the travel industry, but with their recent declaration of bankruptcy, it was only a matter of time. So how will this affect travel to Hawaii? At the moment, it has driven airfares up a bit, that combined with increasing fuel costs. We in San Diego are particularly affected, since we lost our beloved low cost non stop flights to Maui. And with another budget carrier ATA also ceasing operations in the same week (LAX and SFO their popular gateways), the west coast was hit hard. Aloha blamed another low budget carrier, Go! which mainly serves inter island flights in Hawaii, as the main culprit in forcing them out of business. But the competition between airlines for business to Hawaii will remain intense, eventually forcing the many remaining carriers to bring their fares down in their predictable summer fare wars. So my advice is keep your ears and eyes open as fares will drop in the coming months, and Fall is always a good time to visit Hawaii. In the meantime, there are some great deals to Mexico!
