I’ll keep this brief as to be timely, as these fares won’t last.
Southwest just dropped their price on some of their brand new inter-island flight, between Honolulu and Maui, to $29, and Hawaii Airlines is playing ball. Right now you can find flights on both airlines between Honolulu and Maui, as well as Honolulu and Kona (on Hawaiian) for the super low price of $29.
I’m seeing the Southwest flights pricing at just 1,379 Rapid Rewards (and $5.60 in tax).
Routes on sale for $29, on Southwest and Hawaiian, include:
- Honolulu to Maui
- Maui to Honolulu
- Honolulu to Kona
- Kona to Honolulu
SALE TRAVEL DATES: MAY THROUGH OCTOBER.
And if you can’t find the inter-island flight you’re looking for for $29, chances are you’ll see it for $39.
Come May 12th, 2019, Southwest is supposed to begin their Honolulu to Kona route, which is very likely why Hawaiian has put that route on sale. I’d look out for very low starting fares from Southwest around May 12.
According to Beat of Hawaii, for now Southwest is using Boeing 737-800 aircraft instead of the controversial and grounded Max 8 planes (which are planned to be grounded from the Hawaiian skies until at least August 5, 2019).
Tip of the hat to reader Buzz for letting me know!
