Alaska Airlines today launched its second Hawaii market from San Diego with a new daily nonstop flight to Honolulu, on the island of Oahu.

The service complements the airline’s existing daily nonstop flight between San Diego and Kahului, Maui, which started in October 2010. “With its beautiful beaches, historic sites and endless sunshine, Honolulu is a great complement to our existing San Diego-Maui nonstop service,” said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of marketing, in a company statement.

Summary of new service:

Date City pair Departs Arrives Frequency
Nov. 17 San Diego-Honolulu 9:15 a.m. 1:15 p.m. Daily
Nov. 17 Honolulu-San Diego 3:40 p.m. 11:15 p.m. Daily
All times are based on local time zones

Hawaii flights are operated with Boeing 737-800 aircraft, accommodating 16 passengers in first class and 141 in the main cabin.
