On Sunday, March 17, Southwest Airlines completed their first trip to the Hawaiian Islands. They completed a non-stop flight from Oakland, California to Honolulu, Hawaii.
Passengers on board were treated with traditional aloha, receiving leis, in-flight hula dancing, and island-themed refreshments. Island inspired drinks on Southwest’s Hawaii flights include Longboard Island Lager from Kona Brewing Company, Minute Maid pineapple orange juice, and Blue Chair Bay coconut-spiced rum.
The inaugural flight landed in Honolulu at 2 pm local time and was greeted by Hawaii Governor David Ige and Southwest Airlines President Tom Nealon.
The upcoming flight schedule includes a twice-daily flight in each direction from the mainland to the Hawaiian Islands. Kauai flights are said to be coming soon.
