Airline Tips and Traveler Help

Checked Baggage

When it comes to checked baggage, Hawaiian Airlines offers different allowances depending on the type of ticket and destination. For domestic flights within Hawaii, the first checked bag is free for all passengers, while additional bags incur a fee. For international flights, the number of free checked bags varies based on the fare class and destination. It is advisable to check the Hawaiian Airlines website or contact their customer service for specific information regarding your flight.

Extra, Oversized, and Special Items

If you plan to bring extra, oversized, or special items such as sporting equipment, musical instruments, or fragile items, Hawaiian Airlines has specific rules and fees. Oversized items that exceed the standard baggage dimensions may incur additional charges. Sporting equipment like surfboards, golf clubs, and bicycles may also require an extra fee, and it is recommended to notify the airline in advance. Musical instruments can be carried as part of your checked or carry-on baggage, but certain restrictions may apply, so it is best to contact the airline for guidance.

Note that air carriers often change the details of these rules and requirements, so be sure to check directly with Hawaiian Airlines on the day you are flying for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
