Southwest Airlines is launching direct service from Las Vegas to Hawaii starting this June, the airline announced Thursday. Passengers will be able to book trips to Honolulu, Kahului, Kona Island and Lihue by the end of the year. One-way fares will start as low as $159. Nonstop flights to Honolulu begin on June 6 and fly twice daily, followed by flights to Kahului on June 27. Once-a-day flights to Kona and Lihue begin on Sept. 7 and 8, respectively. “We’re building on an era of affordability that Southwest initiated for Hawaii air travel,” Andrew Watterson, Southwest’s chief commercial officer, said in a press release. “These new flights bring Hawaii service closer to more of our Customers who live near airports across the West, and make it possible to choose Southwest to fly between the Aloha State and cities as far east as Nashville, without spending an entire overnight in the air.” Southwest said it will also start direct service to Hawaii from Los Angeles and Phoenix.
