Alaska Airlines Begins Daily Flights from Seattle to Kona, Hawaii

17 November 2008

I’m sure you’re wondering why a website about the sunniest vacation spot in the world features a picture of an airplane flying over a snow-covered, ice-capped mountain?  Because the Earth Times reported today that Alaska Airlines will start daily, year-round air travel service from Seattle to Kona, Hawaii.

The new flights will provide convenient connections to travelers in other cities served by Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air throughout the Pacific Northwest and state of Alaska.

Alaska Airlines already offers flights to 3 other destinations in Hawaii, Kona is just the newest one, and it’s on the big island of Hawaii.  Alaska Airlines is looking forward to welcoming customers on board Alaska Airlines to discover another of the unique and beautiful Hawaiian Islands, according to Gregg Saretsky, Alaska Airlines’ executive vice president of flight and marketing.

Flights in the Boeing 737-800 aircraft to Kona International Airport will leave Seattle every day at 8:40 am PST and arrive at 1 pm in the afternoon, Hawaii time.  Returning flights to Seattle will leave at 2 pm and arrive at 9:40 pm PST.

And if you’re leaving rainy Seattle for a beautiful vacation or honeymoon in Hawaii, you’ll be happy to know that all flights offer Hawaiian-themed drinks and food, so you can start enjoying the culture and resort atmosphere of a Hawaiian vacation early!  They also have in-flight personal entertainment systems including movies, TV, music, etc. to keep you occupied.

Check out the Alaska Airlines/Horizon Air website for travel, flight and vacation booking info.

    This is excellent news.

    We really need more daily flights from the mainland. Direct flights inevitably mean that vacationers can get to this paradise with less difficulty. Make the trip … you won’t be disappointed!
