Flying to Hawaii

When is the Best Time to Fly from Melbourne to Hawaii?
While there really is no bad time to travel to Hawaii, plan your trip around the fall and spring seasons if you’re looking to save on booking the best flights to Hawaii from Melbourne. During these months you’ll find flight deals that are easier on your wallet along with Hawaii holiday packages, and you can expect to see emptier beaches, more alone time on hiking trails and smaller crowds around popular Hawaii attractions, such as Matsumoto’s Shave Ice on Oahu’s North Shore and the summit of Haleakala on Maui. Of course, summer and winter are some of the best times to visit Hawaii in their own ways—as Christmas in the Islands is truly a unique experience and summer is synonymous with Hawaii’s postcard perfect beaches and ideal island days.
Do I Need a Passport to Fly between Australia and Hawaii?
Hawaii is a part of the United States of America—being the nation’s 50th state—and is considered international travel for Aussies. So yes, if you want to travel from Melbourne to Honolulu (MEL to HNL)—or any of the Hawaiian Islands—you will need a valid passport for any flight to Hawaii. And once you’re there you will be on a visitor’s visa, which allows you to stay in the country for up to 90 days.
How Long is the Flight from Melbourne to Hawaii?
If you book with Hawaiian Airlines, you can expect your flight time from Melbourne to Hawaii should arrive in just over 13 hours. Don’t worry, it’s not all airtime on your Hawaii flight. Flying from the Melbourne Airport (MEL) to the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) includes a short layover in Sydney, which is where direct flights to Hawaii depart from. The distance from Melbourne to Honolulu is just under 9,000 kilometers.
General Hawaii Tips
If you’re a first time visitor to Hawaii, or even a veteran traveler, don’t be afraid of hopping between a few islands on your visit. Island hopping is a great way of seeing even more of what Hawaii has to offer, and each island, from Kauai to Maui and Molokai to Oahu, has its own unique personality. If you’re coming in from Melbourne, you may want to make Oahu your first stop, as it’s a great place to get comfortable in Hawaii with a variety of amenities and shops in close proximity, before heading out to a neighbor island. Fortunately, Hawaiian Airlines offers interisland service and routes, meaning you can enjoy the top-of-the-line service and aloha spirit on your way between islands.
