More Hawaii Airfare Options

Are There More Hawaii Airfare Options Now?

There have been some cut backs in the number of flights serving Hawaii from last year. But we have also seen some movement to add seat capacity on flights to the Aloha State. We are not certain the legacy and regional carriers are eager to expand their Hawaii offerings.  So other than the current providers, are there other Hawaii Airfare options now?

One of the other options had been Allegiant Air. Allegiant had been scaling back their offerings on airfare to Hawaii from their traditional small city markets. But now, they are adding new capacity out of Los Angeles. This is a departure from their usual business model. Allegiant Air will be directly going up against the big guys now out of LAX. So it’ll be interesting to see how it performs in a major metropolitan area.

Hawaiian Airlines is also expanding, especially internationally. They’ve recently announced flights to and from Taiwan as well as to and from China. Buoyed by the announcement of its one time performance among US carriers, Hawaiian also recently announced service to Tokyo’s Haneda airport from Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii.

But many are still eagerly awaiting to see what Southwest Airlines on offering Hawaii airfares. It’s almost a certainty that Southwest’s entry into the Hawaii market will be a game changer. But the question is, when? While its rates are not as cheap as they used to be, Southwest still does not charge baggage fees, unlike the other carriers. And at $25 to $40 per bag, it could certainly give many potential flyers good reason to choose Southwest over the airlines that fly to Hawaii today.

What are your thoughts on Hawaii airfare options? We’d certainly be interested in them. Send in your comments below.
