On the heels of Alaska Airlines recent announcement of an increase in Bay Area flights, the airline today offered a low fare sale on Hawaii flights from West Coast cities and Alaska.

Spring tourism on Maui should see an increase with the new one-way fares being offered as low as $159 from the West Coast and $259 from Alaska. Tickets must be purchased by March 9, 2011, and travel end dates vary.

For instance, travel must be completed by May 28, 2011, between Sacramento and Maui, Oakland and the Big Island of Hawaii, San Jose and Maui, and San Jose and the Big Island of Hawaii.

Travel must be completed by June 9, 2011, between Oakland and Kauai, San Jose and Kauai, San Diego and Maui, and Bellingham and Honolulu.


Travel must be completed by August 22, 2011, between Alaska and Honolulu.


“Travel to Hawaii has never been more affordable,” said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of marketing, in a statement today. “With our increased service from the West Coast to Hawaii, our travelers have more flights to choose from and great low fares on Alaska’s award-winning service to the Islands.”

Alaska Airlines ranked “Highest in Customer Satisfaction Among Traditional Network Carriers”  in the J.D. Power and Associates 2008, 2009 and 2010 North America Airline Satisfaction Studies.

Alaska Airlines Vacations is also offering affordable Hawaiian package deals to Oahu, Kauai, Maui and the Big Island. Packages include air transportation, hotel accommodations, and optional ground transportation, tours and sightseeing activities.
