Southwest Kicks Off Hawaii Flights for $49

Southwest obtained FAA authority to fly to Hawaii last week and is already selling cheap fares.

Southwest announced Monday that it will resume Hawaiian flights on March 17. To sweeten the deal, 

the airline is offering $49 one-way or $98 round-trip flights between California and Hawaii.

The $49 flights are selling fast, so anyone who books a $100 round-trip flight is lucky. Southwest's Hawaii service might please even those who

don't acquire the cheapest tickets. A $300 Hawaii flight is a wonderful price, so the $79 and $99 one-way fares are still great. stated that Oakland to Honolulu would start daily flights on March 17 and Honolulu to Oakland will start once-daily flights a day later.
