Hawaiian Airlines eliminates base commissions

HONOLULU -- Hawaiian Airlines stopped paying base commissions June 24 for tickets purchased in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

"Hawaiian has been among the last airlines to reduce travel agency commissions over the past four years, but with the rest of our industry clearly headed in this direction, we feel it's necessary to take this action to remain cost-competitive," said John W. Adams, Hawaiian's chairman, president and chief executive officer.
