Alaska Airlines to Expand to Kauai and the Big Island Beginning March

Alaska Airlines announced today that it would expand its schedule starting daily, nonstop service from Oakland and San Jose, Calif., to Lihue, on the island of Kauai, and Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii starting March 12, 2012.

The airline has previously served the markets with three flights a week between San Jose and Lihue and between Oakland and Kona and four flights a week from San Jose to Kona and Oakland to Lihue.

“We are really excited to now offer daily service from San Jose and Oakland to three Hawaiian Islands,” said Joe Sprague, Alaska’s vice president of marketing. “Going to seven flights a week from both San Jose and Oakland to Kauai and Kona – along with our existing daily service from both cities to Maui – makes it more convenient than ever for Bay Area travelers flying to the Hawaiian Islands.”

To celebrate the new service, Alaska Airlines is offering one-way fares of $179* on flights from the Bay Area to Lihue and Kona and to Kahului on the island of Maui, which the airline serves from Oakland, San Jose and Sacramento, Calif. Tickets must be purchased by Sept. 3 for travel from March 12 through June 9, 2012. Fares are for travel Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to Hawaii and for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from Hawaii. Blackout dates apply. See terms and conditions below for information about all fares. A complete list of fares and days of travel is available at www.alaskaair.com or by calling 1-800-ALASKAAIR (800-252-7522 or TTY/TDD line 800-392-0228).
