Aloha Airlines now offers the convenience of interline electronic ticketing with Japan Airlines, enabling Aloha and Japan to issue e-tickets for itineraries that include flights on both carriers.
Interline e-ticketing is a boon to passengers because it eliminates the possibility of losing paper tickets en route. In addition to issuing interline e-tickets, Japan Airlines can also issue boarding passes for connecting flights on Aloha Airlines.
“Aloha has welcomed Japanese visitors to Hawaii for the past 60 years,” said David A. Banmiller, Aloha’s president and chief executive officer. “Along with other steps we are taking, this makes traveling on Aloha even more convenient for passengers from Japan.”
Aloha already has interline electronic ticketing capability with 10 other airline partners: American Airlines, Air Canada, Continental Airlines, ATA Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, Northwest Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways and Island Air.
Aloha Airlines celebrates its 60th anniversary on July 26. On that day in 1946, the Hawaii-based carrier operated its first revenue flight between Honolulu and Hilo via Kahului. Today, Aloha serves Honolulu, Lihue, Kahului, Kona and Hilo with comfortable, full-size Boeing jets and convenient flights throughout the day. Aloha also offers transpacific service between the Islands and Oakland, Sacramento, Orange County, San Diego, Las Vegas and Reno.
