JALPAK Launches Package Tours to Hawaii Featuring Charter Flights from Haneda – Offering Special Price Prior to Scheduled Flight Operation
JALPAK has recently introduced JAL Pack Special â€œ6-Days Tour to Hawaii by JAL/JALways Charter Flight from Haneda.â€ There are seven departures by charter flights starting from October 6, prior to the airlineâ€™s first scheduled service to Honolulu from Tokyoâ€™s Haneda Airport slated for October 31 this year. Although the tour programs are basically different from the package tours currently operated from Narita, the tour prices are set from 9,000 yen to 32,000 yen lower in a drive to stimulate tours to Hawaii from Haneda Airport. Package tours planned on scheduled flights from Haneda, incidentally, are some 9,000 yen higher than Narita departures except for some tours since the economy class fare from Haneda is 10,000 yen higher than from Narita, said JALPAK.
Key feature of Hawaii tours from Haneda using the late evening departure and early morning arrival slots is that customers joining from the Tokyo metropolitan area can enjoy a 6-day Hawaii tour, taking only two days off. As these charter flights are scheduled to depart from Honolulu at 0200, guest rooms are kept available for late check-out. The package price also includes benefits such as free ride on the â€œRainbow Trolleyâ€ exclusively for JALPAK guests and its original bus tour â€œHokuleaâ€ at no additional cost. With Hanedaâ€™s new international passenger terminal becoming operational from October 21, customers leaving for Honolulu on October 18 would enjoy a rare experience of departing from the existing passenger terminal and returning to the brand new passenger terminal at Haneda.
The package tour sales meanwhile started from July 21 and the number of bookings continuously rises as the internationalization of Haneda Airport and its new international passenger terminal building continue to receive media exposures. On August 3 alone, 40 people were reportedly booked. JALPAK anticipates sellout of 40 seats on each departure totaling 336.
