Don’t wait! There are a number of cheap flights popping up from various US cities (mostly those on the West Coast) to the major Hawaiian islands
Flights are going for as little as ~$257 round-trip in coach. Sale cities include San Diego, Seattle, Portland, Las Vegas, Boston, Houston, Denver, and more!
These cheap tickets are mainly available through February 2019, with a few deals into March 2019. As always, it’s worth searching your home airport and travel dates to see if you can find a discounted fare that fits your travel plans.
The best deals seem to be on United Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, American Airlines, and Sun Country.
For example, there are round-trip coach flights from:
- Boston to Kailua or Kahului for $414
- Denver to Honolulu, Kahului or Kauai for $372
- Denver to Kailua for $362
- Houston to Kailua or Kahului for $414
- Oakland to Kailua for $285
- Phoenix to Hilo for $330
- Portland to Honolulu for $257
- San Diego to Kauai $317
- Seattle to Honolulu for $372
- and more!
When the cash price of tickets is this low, it can make sense to pay with flexible points for your flights to Hawaii. You could end up paying fewer points compared to booking an award ticket. Plus, you’ll earn frequent flyer miles while you’re at it!
For example, if you have the Chase Sapphire Reserve® you can pay for airfare through the Chase travel portal for 1.5 cents per point. Or with the U.S. Bank Altitude™ Reserve Visa Infinite® Card your points are worth the same 1.5 cents per point when you book airfare through the US Bank travel center. So the cheapest flights will set you back only ~17,134 points with either card (~$257 airfare / 1.5 cents per point)!
