Alaska Airlines adds new nonstop service from Seattle area airport to Honolulu
Alaska Airlines is adding new nonstop service between one of Seattle area’s airports and Honolulu starting in the fall.
It will be the carrier’s first flight connecting Paine Field-Snohomish County Airport and the Hawaiian Islands. The daily, year-round flight begins on Nov. 17. It is Alaska Airlinesʻ first new route to Honolulu in more than a decade and it will be the longest flight they will operate from Paine Field.
“For those traveling between Honolulu and Washington State, flying into Seattle/Everett will be a terrific, less congested option and a great way to access the greater Seattle area,” said Daniel Chun, director of sales, community and public relations in Hawai‘i for Alaska Airlines.
With this new flight, Alaska Airlines will fly a combined six nonstops a day to the two Seattle area airports from O‘ahu.
For a limited time, introductory fares between Seattle/Everett and Honolulu start at $149 one-way along with Mileage Plan award redemptions as low as 12,500 miles one-way. Tickets are available for purchase now at alaskaair.com.
“If there’s one place our guests told us again and again that they wanted to fly to from Seattle’s northern airport, it’s beautiful Hawai‘i. We’ve been eager to make it happen,” said Kirsten Amrine, vice president of revenue management and network planning for Alaska Airlines.
Alaska marked 15 years of flying to Hawai‘i this past fall. The airline launched its first flight between Seattle and Honolulu on Oct. 12, 2007. Service between Seattle and Līhu‘e, Kaua‘i, started two weeks later, followed by Anchorage-Honolulu service in December 2007.
In 2008, Alaska began serving Kona on the Island of Hawai‘i and Kahului on Maui.
