DALLAS, May 13, 2021 Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV) today published new service to Hawaii beginning in June 2021 for Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Phoenix. Alongside established Hawaii service at five other California airports, these three additional gateways with nonstop service to multiple airports in the Hawaiian Islands now give Southwest® Customers in 40+ cities on the mainland low-fare connecting or same-plane access to Hawaii this summer with a value, flexibility, and comfort that only Southwest provides to every Customer on every flight.

“We’re building on an era of affordability that Southwest initiated for Hawaii air travel. 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,” said Andrew Watterson, Chief Commercial Officer & Executive Vice President for Southwest Airlines. “We believe Southwest offers an economy product to Hawaii, which Customers will find comfortable and seating with ample legroom for all*, free onboard entertainment for all, flexible policies for all, and our multi-award winning warmth of Hospitality seamlessly aligns with the Aloha Spirit.”
