With Southwest Airlines’ opening of ticket sales today, Maui Now put together a few price comparisons on Southwest’s new Hawai‘i routes. This unofficial survey takes the lowest price offering from the airlines’ respective websites, although it does not factor in baggage fees or fare limitations. Keep in mind, Southwest Airlines is offering introductory fares, so the jury’s still out for long-term pricing.

Surprisingly, Southwest was not the cheapest offering in certain markets. The biggest price drops we found were with interisland flights:
