    Hawaiian Airlines is temporarily consolidating its check-in services at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in Honolulu due to the drop in travel demand during the global coronavirus pandemic.

Hawaiian Airlines, which has been hit hard by declining demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is temporarily reducing its check-in lobby space at Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.

Beginning Friday, the carrier will centralize its Honolulu airport check-in operations to lobbies 2 and 3 in terminal 1. Hawaii will temporarily vacate Lobby 4 at terminal 2, where it had been checking-in travelers to Japan.

“We appreciate our guests’ patience and understanding as we navigate this extremely dynamic situation,” Jeff Helfrick, vice president of airport operations at Hawaiian Airlines said in a statement. “Consolidating our check-in operations allows us to continue offering the best guest experience to our guests while we adjust our network in the near term.”

This latest cut follows Hawaiian’s previous announcement of a nearly 40% system-wide reduction in flights, a hiring freeze, and other cost containment measures.
