Southwest Airlines to offer flights to Hawaii soon

Southwest Airlines to offer flights to Hawaii soon

For years, Southwest, which already flies more domestic passengers than American, Delta, or United, has been known to have aspirations to fly to Hawaii.

We intend to begin selling tickets in 2018, and while we're not quite ready to offer our Customers specific schedule or market information, tonight's announcement is going to be big news within the industry.

The airline will soon begin the public application process to obtain the Federal Aviation Administration certification that allows aircraft to operate between the mainland and Hawaii.

Southwest Airlines plans to start service to Hawaii at the beginning of next year. Southwest now serves 10 airports in California, including Los Angeles International, Burbank, Long Beach, Orange County, Ontario and San Diego in Southern California. But the airline is the first carrier to begin accepting the new Boeing 737 Max, which has a longer range. So there's every reason to expect that Southwest's entry into the Hawaii market will force other airlines to lower their fares, a boon to Hawaii-bound travelers, whether they ever fly Southwest or not. The planes are more fuel efficient and can fly longer distances than older models.

Although the airline has not indicated what routes it will offer to the state, airline officials said they are evaluating the possibility of offering flights between the islands as well. So far, Southwest had done that by adding new flights from California to popular Mexico beach destinations, including Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas. And now the company has announced its intention to do just that. "For much of California, Hawaii is closer than Florida so it would make sense for us to go there". It made the announcement to employees on Wednesday night.
