Alaska Airlines is expanding San Francisco Bay Area service to Kauai and Hawaii island beginning March 12.
The Seattle-based carrier said Tuesday it will offer daily, nonstop service from the California cities of Oakland and San Jose to Lihue and Kona. The airline previously served the markets with three flights a week between San Jose and Lihue and between Oakland and Kona and four flights a week from San Jose to Kona and Oakland to Lihue.
“Going to seven flights a week from both San Jose and Oakland to Kauai and Kona — along with our existing daily service from both cities to Maui — makes it more convenient than ever for Bay Area travelers flying to the Hawaiian islands,” said Joe Sprague, Alaska’s vice president of marketing.
