Hawaii - Inter island flights

My husband are starting to plan our trip to Oahu and the Big Island next year. We plan on using our frequent flier miles to get to Oahu and back but we would also like to visit the Big Island during this trip. We thought to book an inter-island flight to get there. Does anyone have any advice on arranging this? Thanks in advance for your help!

Most frequent flier programs can provide inter-island tickets for a small additional mileage requirement. I think American Airlines charges an extra 5000 miles for a roundtrip interisland ticket. When you make your reservation for the trip from the mainland to Hawaii, ask about interisland tickets.

I would not waste frequent flyer miles on interisland flights. Currently it is only 120 round trip when you buy coupons. You reserve before you leave and then pick up coupon at airport. The fares were the same last year and with the dip in Hawaiian tourism it is not likely to increase. I would rethink Oahu unless you have an interet in exploring the many cultural and historical places there. Consider the North Shore of Kauai by far the most beautiful and diverse landscape on any of the islands. Just a thought I love Oahu but it is not the picture many have in their head of hawaii. There are places that are scenic and beautiful just usually more crowded and less remote than you find on the neighbor islands.

I have always received very good deals from Roberts Hawaii in Honolulu. They have special fly and drive packages to other islands.
