In case you’re not following our Facebook page, today is the day that Southwest Airlines started selling tickets to Hawaii. And the opening launch fares are quite good!
Currently, Southwest has flights from Oakland and San Jose to Maui and Honolulu. Some days are as low as $49 one-way, or 1950 Southwest Rapid Reward points. The airline will eventually be adding flights from San Diego and Sacramento, and flights to Kauai.
Southwest also has some inter-island flights on sale between Honolulu and the Big Island and Maui. Many dates are just $29 one-way.
Dallas folks, I’m seeing connecting flights from DAL from $112 each way. That’s a huge deal on flights to Hawaii! What a game-changer.
You can book flights on Southwest’s website here. And remember, you can use Southwest points from a Southwest credit card or transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Southwest. Or, you can pay cash and erase the expense with points from cards like the Capital One Venture Rewards card or the Barclaycard Arrival Plus. See our Hot Deals page for more information on these cards.
I don’t expect these opening prices will last long. But, more competition to Hawaii is a great thing for travelers!
