Southwest to Offer Additional Hawaii Flights

Southwest Airlines today published new service to Hawaii beginning in June 2021 for Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Phoenix. Alongside established Hawaii service at five other California airports, these three additional gateways with nonstop service to multiple airports in the Hawaiian Islands now give Southwest® Customers in 40+ cities on the mainland low-fare connecting or same-plane access to Hawaii this summer with a value, flexibility, and comfort that only Southwest provides to every Customer on every flight.

Customers may visit Southwest.com to learn more about the differences of flying to and from Hawaii with Southwest, and to book these new flights with travel as soon as June 6, 2021, on some routes. For some markets in California, Customers can travel beginning June 8, 2021, with fares as low as $129 one-way (purchase by 11:59 p.m. Central Daylight Time on May 14, 2021, number of seats and days of the week are limited, travel dates for markets vary, see both complete flight schedule details and, below, complete fare rules).

“We’re building on an era of affordability that Southwest initiated for Hawaii air travel. These new flights bring Hawaii service closer to more of our Customers who live near airports across the West, and make it possible to choose Southwest to fly between the Aloha State and cities as far east as Nashville, without spending an entire overnight in the air,” said Andrew Watterson, Chief Commercial Officer & Executive Vice President for Southwest Airlines. “We believe Southwest offers an economy product to Hawaii, which Customers will find comfortable and seating with ample legroom for all*, free onboard entertainment for all, flexible policies for all, and our multi-award winning warmth of Hospitality seamlessly aligns with the Aloha Spirit.”

On the new Las Vegas service, Watterson said: “We delivered on the second, most-asked request we’ve heard from people in Hawaii–after we answered a call to offer affordable interisland flying as part of our initial entry into Hawaii in spring 2019—by connecting Hawaii with nonstop service to Las Vegas, ‘the ninth island,’ where Southwest currently offers nearly 200 flights a day to more than 60 airports.”
