Aloha, Cook Islands

Welcome to the Cook Islands

You’re invited to explore the Cook Islands, an idyllic archipelago in the South Pacific, where buildings are no taller than a coconut tree, yet modern luxury and conveniences abound. It shares a time zone with Hawaii, with its own beautiful beaches, abundant marine life and year-round warm tropical temperatures.

We’re excited to soon offer the island nation’s only non-stop flights to and from the U.S., between Honolulu (HNL) and Rarotonga (RAR), launching on May 20, 2023*, just in time for summer vacations. Ticket sales begin Dec. 7, 2022. *Subject to government approval.

Currently, award bookings can be made through our contact center. Online award bookings will be available in early 2023. For more information on how to contact us, click here.
