PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Ready for a cocktail on the beach in Hawaii? Southwest Airlines is now making it a lot easier to travel from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to Hawaii this summer.
Southwest Airlines announced on Thursday morning a massive Hawaii expansion from Phoenix, including nonstop flights to Honolulu, Kahului, Kona, and Lihue. Daily service for Honolulu and Kahului begins on June 27. The Kona and Lihue service will start on Sept. 7. Special one-way fares can be purchased right now, starting as low as $159.
“People move to Phoenix to enjoy our quality of life. Air service is an important part of that equation – our residents like to know they can travel efficiently to popular destinations, whether it is for business or vacation,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “As COVID restrictions ease, and travelers decide to get away, it is exciting to know these new Phoenix to Hawaii flights on Southwest will give them more convenient options.”
In addition to Phoenix service, Southwest Airlines also announced new nonstop Hawaii flights from Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and San Diego. Click here for more information on the new flights.
