United Airlines offers must-book-now Hawaii roundtrip airfare deals to four islands


United Airlines is offering discounted roundtrip airfares for early 2010 travel to Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island from a handful of Mainland U.S. cities the carrier serves.

The rates—part of a promo deal United is calling the “Hawaii Fun in the Sun Sale”—are good for travel from Jan. 12, 2010, to March 4, 2010—coinciding with Hawaii’s busy winter travel season.

The catch? Tickets must be purchased on or before Dec. 15th. That’s right, folks—by tomorrow!

A bit of advice. We’ve found cheaper winter season roundtrip fares to the Islands on Hawaiian Airlines for departures from Los Angeles and San Francisco, than United’s “Fun in the Sun” deal had listed. Still, United’s sale fares for direct flights from Denver and Chicago seemed good deals to us.

Here is United’s “Hawaii Fun in the Sun Sale” each-way fare breakdown; a roundtrip purchase is required to get the fare:


Honolulu – San Francisco, Calif.: $257
Honolulu – Los Angeles, Calif.: $261
Honolulu – Denver, Colo.: $281
Honolulu – Chicago, Ill.: $298

Big Island of Hawaii:

Kona – San Francisco, Calif.: $265
Kona – Los Angeles, Calif.: $269    
Kona – Denver, Colo.: $289
