Travel to Hawaii for only 7.5k miles each way!

Posted on August 15, 2019 by in TOP Travel Destinations, Travel Agent Rate, Travel Deals, Travel News

Visiting Hawaii is at the top of most travelers’ bucket lists. The idyllic, tropical paradise offers more than just beaches. Nick Reyes from The Frequent Miler discovered this lovely opportunity recently: 7.5k Turkish Miles each way in the economy to Hawaii. And, if there’s award availability, you can go by in Business Class each way for 12.5k Turkish Miles.

How to get the awards?

Turkish Airlines now treats the Mainland United States, Canada, Mexico and Hawaii as the same North America region. This means that, according to the Turkish award chart, you can fly domestic carriers at a discount for an in-region award. Turkish Miles & Smiles has an incredibly generous award chart so it might be worth checking out for other travel destinations besides Hawaii.

***Applicable Mile amount for direct flights with Star Alliance member airlines in the same country.

What does this exactly mean? Well, the prices with domestic Star Alliance awards and Turkish miles and smiles should look like this:

  • 7.5K each way in economy class
  • 12.5K each way in Business Class

How to book the trip?

You won’t be flying Turkish Airlines to Hawaii. You will be flying United Airlines since they both belong to Star Alliance. What that means is to find the availability you will need to search for award space on the United Airlines and then book with Turkish Airlines. To book the ticket you need to go to a Turkish Airlines ticket office, email them or call them. There are only several cities in the United States that have Turkish Ticket Sales Offices, so email or phone is going to be the best option. Lately there have been reports of successful bookings on Star Alliance partners via email.

Turkish Airlines is a 1:1 transfer partner of the US version of the Citibank ThankYou Rewards program.
