One of the most popular island holiday destinations, Hawaii enjoys a beautiful tropical climate, ancient Polynesian culture, fascinating natural attractions, American influences, famous beaches and iconic surfing hotspots, outstanding shopping, affordable accommodation and cheap flights. Particularly popular with families and couples, cheap flights from Brisbane to Hawaii are readily available making it a favourite among visitors from Queensland and its capital city.
Virgin Australia and Hawaiian Airlines operate direct flights from Brisbane to Hawaii three times a week with flights arriving in Honolulu and taking approximately 9 to 10 hours. Connecting flights are also available throughout Hawaii to other destinations including Kona, Kapalua and Lanai City. Qantas also operates direct flights to Hawaii departing from Sydney with connecting flights available from Brisbane (BNE). Fiji Airways offers direct flights from Nadi to Honolulu (HNL) twice a week with weekday flights connecting from Brisbane to Nadi on weekdays. This is a great way to break up the long flight and enjoy some time in Fiji before arriving in Hawaii.
Located in Honolulu, the Hawaii International Airport is situated on the island of Oahu and is just 40 minutes from the iconic Waikiki Beach by car. Comprised of two terminals, the main airport terminal is the larger of the two and is reserved for international arrivals and departures while the smaller second terminal caters for domestic flights within Hawaii to other island destinations.
As one of the 50 states of the United States of America, international visitors to Hawaii require a valid passport to gain entry into the country. The USA also operates a Visa Waiver Program which means visitors from certain countries are permitted to enter for a maximum of 90 days without a visa. However it's important to note that any time spent in mainland USA, Mexico or Canada also counts toward the 90 day maximum.
