Travel Weekly's Hawaii E-letter: Sept. 11, 2006

BLUEHAWAIIAN.COM has introduced a comprehensive online resource for Hawaii, with photo/video tours of the islands covering beaches, accommodations, activity options, tours and general background. The high-quality clips can be downloaded and copied for agency use and are available in high-definition. Visit www.bluehawaiian.com.

GO AIRLINES, which began interisland service in June, has reintroduced $29 interisland fares. With strong load factors, Go has been pursuing customers with fares that are as little as one-third of typical interisland fares before Go entered the market. Hawaiian and Aloha have generally matched Go's discounts, with all three carriers limiting discounted fares to short booking windows and limited capacity. Disregarding Go's lowest fares, Go's $39 and $49 fares have created a fare war that's likely to continue into 2007.

THE WAIKIKI BEACH MARRIOTT RESORT & SPA is offering a $229 night room rate through Dec 25. Call (800) 367-5350, or go to www.marriottwaikiki.com.
