Hawaiian Airlines opens new business class

Hawaiian Airlines opens new business class

Hawaiian Airlines now offers its business class guests a new lounge in Honolulu: the Plumeria Lounge, named after the iconic lei flower.

Inside you’ll find a food and beverage selection including pastries from La Tour Café plus craft beer by Maui Brewing Co. for one last taste of Hawaii before flying home or onward to your next destination.

You’ll also find Hawaiian design aspects throughout the space, such as the wooden ceiling fans and a colour palate of azure, yellow and green to match the island landscape.

Business travellers can make use of free wireless Internet to remain connected with the office, paired with ample AC and USB power outlets to recharge before the flight ahead.

Now open, the lounge welcomes Hawaiian Airlines business class passengers travelling internationally, along with the airline’s Pualani Platinum and Gold frequent flyers and Premier Club members travelling in economy.

From July 15, Hawaiian's economy passengers will also be able to purchase lounge access during check-in or at the lounge entrance for US$40 per person.

Virgin Australia Velocity Gold and Platinum frequent flyers, however, will continue to use the Delta Sky Club in Honolulu when bound for Australia in economy with Hawaiian Airlines, having no access to the Plumeria Lounge unless flying in business class.

    It's strange how interior designers think that being in the tropics means being permanently stuck in 1983.
