We are pleased to announce that Preferred Vacations is one of the first travel agencies to offer Southwest Airlines Hawaii Vacation Packages! As Hawaii Destination Specialists, we welcome the addition of Southwest Airlines Hawaii flights to our portfolio of travel packages to the islands.

We are initially offering vacation packages to the islands of Oahu (HNL), Maui (OGG), and Hawaii (KOA). Service to these islands will be offered from Oakland (OAK) and San Jose (SJC), California.
·       OAK to HNL: First flight on 3/17/19 with one daily nonstop.  Second daily nonstop will start 3/24/19.
·       OAK to OGG: First flight on 4/7/19 with one daily nonstop.  Second daily nonstop will start 4/10/19.
·       OAK to KOA: First flight on 5/12 connecting through HNL.
·       SJC to HNL: One daily nonstop will start 5/5/19.
·       SJC to OGG: One daily nonstop will start 5/26/19.
·       SJC to KOA: First flight on 5/12 connecting through HNL. 
In addition to the above routes, packages to Oahu (HNL) and Maui (OGG) are also available from the following regions:
·       Southern California – Burbank (BUR), Long Beach (LGB), Ontario (ONT), Orange County (SNA)
·       Pacific Northwest – Boise (BOI), Portland (PDX), Seattle (SEA), Spokane (GEG)
·       Mountain West/Southwest  – Albuquerque (ABQ), Denver (DEN), Las Vegas (LAS), Salt Lake City (SLC)
·       Midwest – Minneapolis (MSP)   

Keep in mind that Southwest Airlines will operate these flights in a similar fashion to all other flights. Seating will still be done in the same pattern and we highly recommend Early Bird Check-In to ensure the best chance to sit together. We all know that at some point there will only be middle seats left as the plane fills up. And as a big perk, you’ll still enjoy free checked bags on Southwest Hawaii.

Southwest does not serve meals, so it’s best to eat prior to your flight or carry on a sandwich or snack.

The best thing about the introduction of Southwest Airlines Hawaii flights? Increased competition should lead to lower fares and we can all use a little savings!

Southwest has plans to add additional flight departures from San Diego and Sacramento.
