Say Aloha to Hawaii on Southwest!

Pack some sunscreen, your flowery shirt and a pair of flip flops cuz it’s time to book that trip to Hawaii!  Southwest Airlines is Officially taking Reservations for flights to Hawaii!  Heck you can pack whatever you want since Southwest allows 2 bags per person for free!

They are now offering flights to these Hawaiian Airports:

  • Oahu (HNL)
  • Maui (OGG)
  • Kona (KOA)

I hope you got signed up for the Southwest Rapid Rewards Card earlier this year when they were running their Companion Pass plus 30,000 Points Sign Up Bonus (after meeting $4,000 spend within 90 days).  I did!

I debated about it because I had some other things I was working toward too, but it was just too sweet of an offer to pass up.  I have now nearly completed my Spend Requirement and should get my Companion Pass and bonus points soon.

Although it wasn’t on my radar for this year, things are lining up in such a way that  I will have to at least consider planning a trip to Hawaii.   I will have review my itinerary to see if I can make it work since my travel Companion would fly free plus I have plenty of additional points to use.  Sometimes you just have to go with the flow!


If you were on the ball, you may have already snagged one of their amazing inaugural $49 fares. Don’t worry if you didn’t though   Southwest runs Fare Sales on a regular basis, you may still be able to get a great deal

With Southwest you can go to their Low Fare Finder, Enter your Airports then look at the rates for a whole month to find the cheapest dates to fly.

Take a look at this USA Today article to fully understand what services you can and can’t expect when booking an Economy flight to Hawaii on Southwest.
