Hawaiian Airlines has increased its one-way interisland fares by $10, raising its lowest fare from $54 to $64. According to officials from the Honolulu-based carrier, the fare hikes — which took place May 27 — came in direct response to rising operating costs caused by record-breaking fuel prices.

“Fuel prices are now 100 percent higher than a year ago, so unfortunately, just like every other business that consumes oil, we must raise our fares to help offset some of this increase,” said Keoni Wagner, Hawaiian Airlines’ vice president of public affairs.

Hawaiian is increasing its fuel surcharges for trans-Pacific service between Hawaii and the mainland U.S. by $35 each way, up from $65 to $100.
