California, get ready for nonstop flights to Hawaii on Southwest Airlines.
Southwest Airlines announced on Thursday that four California cities will serve nonstop flights to Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in Honolulu (HNL), Kahului Airport on Maui (OGG), Lihue Airport on Kauai (LIH), and Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keahole (KOA).
Southwest Airlines plans to fly to those Hawaiian cites from Oakland Metropolitan Airport (OAK), San Diego International Airport (SAN), Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC) and Sacramento International Airport (SMF).
The Texas-based airline plans to sell tickets to Hawaii sometime in 2018. If you are flying from Phoenix, you will be able to have a layover in one of the California cities listed above before continuing on to Hawaii.
The service plans are pending FAA approval.
Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport already offers non-stop service to Hawaii on Hawaiian Airlines and American Airlines.
