The first half of 2018 will largely be about increased competition from existing airlines. New flights to Honolulu, Maui, Kona and Lihue are being announced as Hawaiian Airlines takes delivery of the single-aisle Airbus A321neo fleet, and Alaska receives their first Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. These new extended range jets are the upcoming workhorses for most west coast (and beyond) flights to Hawaii. Plus United and Delta reminding us all that they are here in Hawaii to stay.
The second half of 2018 is likely to be about Southwest Airlines flights to Hawaii. SWA is gearing up rapidly and there may be flight announcements as early as next month.
Introduction – Cheapest Time to Fly to Hawaii | Vacation Deals in 2018
Flights to Hawaii remain at inflation adjusted low prices and this is only going to get better – probably a lot better. That’s great news for 2018 Hawaii vacations. Recent and upcoming competition and strong discounting on many routes result in cheaper than expected flights to Hawaii.
The two largest Hawaii air markets – Southern California and Northern California, continue to see improving sale pricing as some shake up in competition is occurring. Those markets will continue to improve in 2018.
Seattle and Portland have had increased competition including Delta inaugurating nonstop flights from Seattle to Lihue as of December 2017. Expect more flights to Hawaii on Delta as they compete head on with Alaska Airlines from the Pacific Northwest. Seattle has benefited most to date with excellent prices on both Delta and United. This is also having a positive effect on the price of flights to Hawaii from Portland.
San Diego and Sacramento have had favorable improvements in prices on flights to Hawaii in 2017 and there will be new flights from those cities in 2018.
