Hawaiian Airlines and Barclays announced on Monday, July 9, 2018, the launch of an enhanced Hawaiian Airlines World Elite Mastercard and Hawaiian Airlines Business Mastercard that allow cardmembers to earn more miles faster and embark on their next vacation sooner through a refreshed 3-2-1 rewards structure.

“As Hawai‘i’s destination carrier, we are excited to reward our cardmembers with greater benefits that make it easier for them to visit our islands while experiencing our award-winning Hawaiian hospitality,”said Peter Ingram, president and CEO at Hawaiian Airlines.

The consumer card’s 3-2-1 rewards structure simplifies vacation savings for new World Elite cardmembers starting July 11, and for existing customers on their cycle date after July 11. Consumer cardmembers will earn 3x HawaiianMiles per dollar spent on Hawaiian Airline purchases; 2x on gas, dining and grocery store purchases; and 1x on all other purchases, with no mileage caps. World Elite consumer cardmembers will continue to enjoy current benefits such as one free checked bag for eligible bags on Hawaiian Airlines-operated flights, no foreign transaction fees, $100 annual companion discount and low introductory APR on balance transfers, as well as all the World Elite Mastercard benefits.

“Whether a frequent flyer to the Hawaiian Islands or saving for a once-in-a-lifetime trip, our cards are tailored toward rewarding cardmembers with meaningful benefits,” said Dan Dougherty, managing director of airline partnerships, Barclays. “By allowing cardmembers to earn miles faster as well as access companion discounts and mile sharing with friends and family, we’re un-complicating travel toHawai‘i and making dream vacations a reality.”

To mark the credit card’s relaunch and celebrate the increased dining and grocery rewards, the Hawaiian Airlines World Elite Mastercard program, supported by Barclays, Hawaiian Airlines, Mastercard and Bank of Hawai‘i, donated $100,000 to support Hawaiʻi’s local agriculture industry. The funds will beshared by four nonprofit local organizations to advance sustainable agriculture and conservation in the islands.
