After much anticipation, Southwest Airlines began ticket sales for Hawai‘i destinations on March 4, 2019. The newly-released flight schedule includes California to Hawai‘i, as well as interisland routes. One-way flights from O‘ahu to Maui were posted as low as $28.

The airline will launch its inaugural flight from Oakland to Honolulu on March 17, followed by flights from Oakland to Maui on April 7.

At 6 a.m., the Dallas-based carrier posted the following tweet:


Earlier this week, Southwest Airlines received Federal Aviation Administration approval, for Hawai‘i service and said it would lay out details for its service “in the coming days.”

Southwest Airlines is now selling interisland flights with one-way rates as low as $29.


Southwest wanted to sell Hawai‘i flights last year, but it took longer than expected to gain approval from the FAA. That process was further delayed by the 35-day government shutdown that began late last year.
