Island Air’s new College Student Standby Program is offering students enrolled at University of Hawaiʻi campuses on Oʻahu and Maui the opportunity to stand by for any flight on any day for $35* each way.

This pilot program is available to all students currently enrolled at the UH at Mānoa, UH West Oʻahu and six community institutions (Maui College, Honolulu Community College, Kapiʻolani Community College, Leeward Community College, Lānaʻi Education Center and Windward Community College) who are traveling between the islands of Oʻahu, Maui and Lānaʻi.

To qualify for the college student standby rate, students must present a valid UH student ID and their state or federal ID card or passport to a customer service agent at the Island Air ticket counter. There is no maximum number of times a student may participate in the offer.

“We support our student communities and know how important it is to have a reliable, affordable connection to family and friends, especially for holidays,” said Dave Pflieger, CEO of Island Air. “We are testing this program with the University of Hawaiʻi schools on Oʻahu and Maui for a limited time. The fare is an additional way that Island Air demonstrates its commitment to providing an economical, quality travel experience.”

*$35 is a standby rate, subject to seat availability and can be changed without notice. Fare includes one federal transportation segment tax and one security fee. Other taxes, fees and restrictions may apply.
