“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,”

“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.”

It is understood that these services will be provided by both the Boeing 737-800s and 737 MAX 8s.
