Passengers flying out of Bellingham International Airport (BLI) will have convenient access to some of Hawaii’s best snorkeling and the world-famous Hawaii Volcanoes National Park starting Nov. 12 when Alaska Airlines begins new weekly service between Bellingham and Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii. The new service compliments the airline’s seasonal service from BLI to Maui which is set to begin on Nov. 6.
“The Big Island of Hawaii is one of the top rated travel destinations in the world and we are delighted Alaska Airlines is going to provide our customers with non-stop service to this incredible location,” said Sunil Harman, aviation director. “Alaska Airlines is offering very competitive fares and we anticipate high demand for these flights.”
Alaska Airlines is offering one-way fares to Kona starting at $219. The flights will be operated with Boeing 737-800 aircraft, accommodating 16 passengers in first class and 147 in the main cabin.
