Cheap Airfare to Hawaii-Start Packing your Bags!

November 19, 2011

Take Advantage of Low New Year’s Fares to the Hawaiian Islands! Plan an informative, active and fun trip for your family and spend a week this winter in paradise. Assign your kids to write a report on their educational adventures in Hawaii.

Oahu - There is only one Royal Palace on U.S. soil and its located on this island. ‘Iolani Palace entertained Heads of State, including Queen Elizabeth.  ’Iolani Palace, the official residence of Hawaii’s monarchy, is a marvel of opulence, innovation, and political intrigue. Meticulously restored to its former grandeur, this National Historic Landmark in downtown Honolulu tells of a time when their Majesties, King Kalakaua, who built it in 1882, and his sister and successor, Queen Lili‘uokalani, walked its celebrated halls.

After experiencing your educational walking tour, have you secretly wanted to visit surfers paradise out at Pipeline? The winter waves are the biggest and best of the year!

Maui - The islands of Maui, Molokai and Lanai create a “perfect craddle” for the Humpback Whales to frolick, play and birth their new baby calves.  How about taking your kids on a whale watch and view the Humpback whales teaching their baby calves how to breach?  Lets plan a cruise where they will be able to listen to whale songs through underwater hydrophones, watch mothers and calves interact and see males compete for females!

Hawaii - The volcanoes on the Big island of Hawaii are still erupting - this would make a great science report! The island called Hawaii is larger than all of the other islands combined, big enough to include 11 of the world’s 13 climactic zones—from sandy beaches to snowcapped mountains. Here you can experience accessible waterfalls and rainforests in Hilo or view Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes.

Kauai - The oldest and northernmost island in the Hawaiian chain is known for its dramatic, natural beauty. Adventure lovers, those seeking romantic locales, and family vacationers all can find what they are after in Kauai — from the spectacular sea cliffs on the North coast to the amazing Waimea Canyon.

Give your family the gift of travel this Christmas and yourself a little soul-rejuvenating vacation this year? The mild climate and relaxed lifestyle make winter a wonderful time to visit Hawaii.

With Hawaiian Airs’ special low fares, you can enjoy an Island adventure to kick 2012 off with a dose of aloha spirit.

Booking Period - 11/14 - 11/21/2011
Hawaii Flights from $298* RT
