Hawaiian regards all ADMs as being disputable from the date of ADM issue. Disputes must include a valid dispute reason, and supporting documentation. Disputes may be submitted via Memo Manager (ARC agencies) or BSPLink/ASD (IATA agencies).

Hawaiian reserves the right to assess an administrative fee of $50 (USD equivalent) on any issued ADM. The $50 administrative fee will be added to the debit calculation and summed for total remittance. Late fees may apply for ADMs not settled in a timely manner.

Hawaiian reserves the right to change any of these requirements without advance notification.

ARC Agencies

If you have an ADM to dispute, please do so within 30 days from ADM issue date. Research on ADMs will only be performed on tickets that are within one year from date of ticket issue. ADMs that are disputed later with tickets that are older than one year from date of ticket issue will not be considered for dispute. These ADMs will no longer be contestable and are expected to be paid in full. Agencies are responsible for sharing memos requiring GDS input via Memo Manager.
