Hawaiian Airlines will waive fees for travelers during Hurricane Sandy

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

As Hurricane Sandy makes its way towards the East Coast, Hawaiian Airlines is giving a break to customers traveling to and from the region who may have to change their travel plans because of the so-called ‘Frankenstorm.'

The airline announced on Friday night that it will waive reservation change fees and differences in fares for any customers who are ticketed for travel on Hawaiian between the East Coast and Hawaii. The waived fees only apply to changes in the same class of service, based on seat availability.

Hurricane Sandy, which is currently moving north from the Caribbean region, will likely make landfall sometime on Monday, where it may combine with two other winter weather systems. The combination of the storms could create one that would pound the East Coast with heavy rain, high winds, and up to 2 feet of snow. 

Hawaiian says that customers can change their flights until November 4, as long as they are made no later than November 1.
