On Monday (April 12, 2021), Hawaiian Airlines announced that HawaiianMiles will no longer expire, giving loyalty members a lifetime of flexibility to earn, save and redeem miles. Now, members don’t have to worry about posting activity within 18 months to preserve their miles. In celebration of the new policy, the airline has launched the ‘Endless Hawai’i’ sweepstakes, where loyalty members will have a chance to win one million HawaiianMiles. Hawaiian Airlines originally paused miles expiration from March 2020 through December 31, 2020. The airline later eliminated change fees, allowed members to redeem miles for a pre-travel COVID-19 test, and made it easier to reach Pualani Gold or Platinum status by cutting qualifications by 50 percent.

In an e-mail to HawaiianMiles members, Hawaiian Airlines’ Senior Vice President of Marketing, Avi Mannis, said,


“Removing mileage expiration is one of many changes we're making to better serve our guests and members. The hard times we have gone through as an airline have challenged us to ask ourselves how we can be an even better airline, for our guests, our employees and our communities. We are committed to emerging from this crisis a stronger airline, even more deeply committed to guests and our purpose of connecting people with aloha.”


Hawaiian® Airlines, Hawai’i’s hometown airline, has been the number one U.S. carrier for on-time performance for the past 17 years. The carrier has been in business for 92 years and is Hawai’i’s largest and longest-serving airline. Hawaiian Airlines offers more nonstop connectivity between Hawai’i and the U.S. mainland than any other airline, serving 16 gateways including Los Angeles, Long Beach, Oakland, Portland, San Diego, Seattle, San Francisco, San Jose and Sacramento. Hawaiian Airlines also recently introduced the first-ever nonstop service between Orlando (MCO) and Honolulu (HNL). Additionally, the carrier connects the islands with Japan, South Korea, Australia, American Samoa and Tahiti. Due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, the airline has temporarily suspended service to Australia, New Zealand, American Samoa and Tahiti.
