Hawaiian Airlines is latest carrier to hike its bag fees


By Ben Mutzabaugh, USA TODAY

Hawaiian Airlines has joined the crowd, becoming the latest U.S. carrier to hike its fees for checking bags.

Effective Tuesday (Nov. 13), the Honolulu-based airline is upping the cost of checking one piece of luggage to $30, an increase of $5. The cost for flyers checking a second bag also is rising by $5, jumping to $40.

Hawaiian’s move brings its bag fees in line with what’s now become the industry standard for checked-bag fees. Already this year, American, Delta, United and Alaska Airlines have all increased their fees to $30 for a first bag and $40 for a second.

Southwest Airlines is the only U.S. carrier offering free checked bags. Passengers are allowed to check two bags for free. Weight and size limits apply.

As for Hawaiian, travelers flying on tickets booked prior to Wednesday will still be able to check bags at the previous prices.

The new fees apply to Hawaiian’s flights between the state of Hawaii and destinations in the mainland United States. Fees for Hawaiian’s “neighbor island” flights within the state of Hawaii will remain unchanged at $25 for a first bag and $35 for a second. Members of Hawaiian’s HawaiianMiles frequent-flyer program pay a reduced rate of $15 and $20, respectively, on intrastate flights.

Hawaiian passengers flying on the airline's international flights will continue to be able to check two bags for free. Hawaiian flies several international routes from Hawaii, including to destinations in Australia, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and French Polynesia.
