Alaska Airlines is expanding its service between San Diego and Hawaii with a daily nonstop flight to Honolulu. An airfare sale for the new service, which begins in mid-November, offers $149 for one-way flights slated from Nov. 17 through Dec. 15 on tickets purchased by July 25.
The daily flight from San Diego departs at 9:15 a.m. PST and arrives in Hawaii at 1:15 p.m. HST. The flight from Honolulu departs at 3:40 p.m. HST and arrives in San Diego at 11:15 p.m. PST.
The service, which begins Nov. 17, will complement the airline's existing daily nonstop flight between San Diego and Kahului, Maui, which started in October 2010.
In a press release issued by Alaska Airlines, Thella Bowens, president/CEO of the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, said: “We're pleased to support Alaska's new route between Honolulu and San Diego.” She added, “The expanded service will further connect our two communities and will provide yet another option for San Diegans to visit one of the nation's premier vacation destinations."
Plus, if you happen to be in the San Diego area this week, you may want to sport Aloha wear and stay within earshot of a radio. Alaska Airlines is partnering with San Diego radio stations to give away a plane's worth of tickets to Honolulu at locations throughout the city.
“Nuts for Honolulu” events are inviting listeners and community members to wear Hawaiian clothing at locations to be revealed by the radio stations for a chance to win 160 tickets and other prizes. Details are available on Twitter via hashtag: #nuts4honolulu.
Here’s the lineup for radio station contest broadcasting:
• Tues., July 19 — KHTS 93.3 FM (Channel 933)
• Wed., July 20 — KIFM Smooth 98.1 FM
• Thurs., July 21 — KMYI Star 94.1 FM
