The Story of Virgin America’s New Direct Routes to Hawaii

On February 2, 2016, Burlingame, California based carrier Virgin America announced new direct flights into Hawaii from Los Angeles. So here’s the lowdown on Virgin America’s new direct routes to Hawaii. There will be two daily non-stop flights out of Los Angeles. One lands in Honolulu and another in Kahului, Maui.

To kick off the service, Virgin offered an introductory one-way rate of $169. Virgin America called this special rate, the “Hot Ticket to Hawaii” sale. But it was only effective up to 7:59 pm, Hawaii Standard Time on February 2, 2016. So if you were interested, hopefully you had already booked your flight to either Honolulu or Maui.

This has to be good news for people in Hawaii as well as for those traveling there. More competition generally means lower fares from all airlines that serve Hawaii. While lower fares are good news for all travelers and for the local travel industry.

Route Details

The Los Angeles to Honolulu flight begins on May 5, 2016. While the Los Angeles to Kahului flight begins on June 14, 2016. Taking advantage of these ultra-low introductory fares could be an excellent way to launch summer vacations in Hawaii. These two new routes will be in addition to the daily non-stop flights already offered from San Francisco to Honolulu and Kahului.

According to their website, Hawaii is the most top travel destination of Virgin America’s Elevate loyalty program. Additionally, Hawaii is one of the most popular places to visit for people living on the west coast. The airline is based in California with a reputation for award-winning service. Noted travel magazine Conde Nast has recognized Virgin America as “Best Airline” for 8 consecutive years. So with all of this going for the airline, adding new direct flights from Los Angeles to Oahu and Maui has to be a good move. It’s also good for US west coast travelers.
