The government shutdown delayed Southwest from starting their flights to Hawaii, but as long as we avoid another shutdown (that’s a BIG but!) Southwest has said they hope to begin selling tickets to Hawaii by the end of February and “potentially fly in March.”  And they are checking off the boxes needed to get there – just today they flew their first test flight from Oakland to Honolulu, which was needed to secure a specific FAA certification.

I can’t wait to see the fare wars on flights to Hawaii once that happens, but until then we’ll have to settle for regular Southwest sales.  This sale runs until February 7th and is valid for flights through May 2019.

Getting the whole family to Hawaii will soon be cheaper thanks to Southwest
