Inter Island Flights

Can anyone please recommend an airline for flights between Oahu, Maui and the Big Island, returning then to Oahu? Is it possible to buy a return flight from Oahu to the Big Island with a stop over for 56 days in Maui? Also, we have an international flight leaving Oahu at 9am in the morning is it advisable to fly from the big island the afternoon before or very early the morning of our international flight?

Thank you in advance, Sandy

Aloha,

A. Hawaiian Airlines.

B. Separate flights.

C. Will your I-I flight arrive in time to allow for the requisite int'l check-in ?

You definitely want to use Hawaiian Airlines.

You can book your interisland "legs" (flights) separately.

I'd fly to Honolulu the day before - since you have an early morning international flight. You may be able to fly in to Honolulu that morning and catch your flight home - but that would be a painfully, painfully early morning and looong day!

Aloha,

Check your airline's rules regarding "C" above.

Have extra frequent flyer miles for an airline that partners with Hawaiian? You can probably use those miles for inter island flights. With Delta it's 7500 miles/segment.

Hawaiian Airlines. Period.

You can easily buy separate flights on Hawaiian.

Spend the night before your departure in Honolulu.
