Hawaii Flights: New route from Alaska Air

Hawaii Flights: New route from Alaska Air

As we’d previously suggested, the islands are getting more Hawaii flights, this time again at the hands of Alaska Air. This is capping what has been a stellar year for Hawaii travel deals, in large part due to competition between Hawaiian Air and Alaska, with the new addition of flights from Allegiant Air. There’s never been a better time to plan an economical Hawaii vacation.

First, if you haven’t checked recently, there are still Hawaii travel deals available for winter travel starting at $111 each way, including tax!

New Hawaii flights | San Diego to Kauai

New service was announced today connecting San Diego and Lihue Kauai. It will commence in June’s 2013 peak summer Hawaii travel season. This comes on the heals of their new Portland to Kauai Hawaii flights, which started last week. The starting fare may not seem like one of our Hawaii travel deals. It is however actually nearly 50% off the fare you’d expect for summer Hawaii vacation dates between the west coast and a neighbor island. Stay tuned, as we expect to see more fare sales inaugurating this new Hawaii airline route.

With these additional Hawaii flights, Alaska now serves three islands from San Diego: Oahu, Maui and Kauai. They’ve become a strong contender in both Hawaii and San Diego. They have service to four Hawaiian Islands from eight mainland cities and will offer 160 flights a day out of San Diego starting next summer. San Diego is also served by Hawaiian Air, which flies daily to Honolulu.

Airline: Alaska Air

Travel Dates: starting June 7, 2013

Price: $209 each way including tax

    We are trying to plan our 3rd family trip to Kauai and I just signed up for your alerts last week. Thanks to your email alert yesterday I was able to jump on this great nonstop fare from San Diego to Lihue in 2nd week of June 2013. In addition to a $406 fare they also are discounting the mileage requirements to 40k for r/t. I picked up 2 free tickets on miles, another $99 companion ticket as an Alaska Airlines Visa cardholder and then bought 3 at the sale fare. Family of 6 getting to Kauai nonstop for about $1300 is unbelievable. We are making a 90 minute drive to San Diego from north OC instead of 50 minutes to LAX but thats a small sacrifice for huge savings.

    Thanks!
