Alaska to Introduce New Hawaii Flights From Bay Area to Kauai
The new flights will complement the airline's existing Hawaii service from San Jose and Oakland to Kahului, Maui, and Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii, and new flights between Sacramento, Calif., and Kahului, which started in March 2010.
According to Alaska, the new Hawaii flights will be operated with Boeing 737-800 aircraft, accommodating 16 passengers in first class and 141 in the main cabin. Inflight service includes meals for purchase in the main cabin, complimentary meal service in first class and Alaska Airlines' digEplayer, a personal entertainment system offering a variety of movies, television shows, music and other features.
Joe Sprague, vice president of marketing at Alaska, said: "The Hawaiian Islands are among the most popular leisure destinations that Alaska Airlines serves. This winter we will have more than 100 flights a week to the four major islands from the US West Coast. These new flights to the beautiful ‘Garden Isle' of Kauai will be a great addition to Alaska's Hawaii service for our Bay Area customers."
Will the new service benefit the airline customers?
