Southwest Airlines To Add Flights To Hawaii In 2018

Flying to Hawaii is about to get a lot easier—and cheaper—in 2018, thanks to Southwest Airlines.

After months of speculation and years of requests from customers, Southwest Airlines recently confirmed plans to add the Hawaiian Islands to its list of destinations in 2018. Southwest currently flies the most domestic customers in the United States of any airline, with the new routes driving up competition and potentially driving down the cost of getting to Hawaii.

The official launch dates for the new routes and frequency of the flights have yet to be announced as the airline finalizes details on the expansion, but Southwest anticipates that flights to the Aloha State can begin by late 2018. Though Southwest hasn’t given specific details on initial flight prices or share which of the eight main islands that will be served, the airline did share that California will be apart of the Hawaiian routes, and Southwest is also considering providing flights between the islands.

Carriers currently fly more than 100 round-trip flights between Hawaii and the continental United States every day, with fliers mostly hitting Oahu and The Big Island via Alaska, Hawaiian, American and Delta.

The arrival of Southwest to Hawaii later in 2018 has the potential to be a win for travelers, especially if the competition helps fliers save money. The more cash you have for that second Mai Tai, the better.
