SEATTLE >> Alaska Airlines said Tuesday it will start daily nonstop flights between Honolulu and both Oakland and San Jose, Calif.
The airline said the flights will begin April 10. It said that through Friday, it would sell some seats for as low as $298 per round trip. The offer covers travel Mondays through Thursdays between April 10 and June 9. It’s good only for limited seats and isn’t available on all flights, the company said.
Alaska currently flies from Oakland and San Jose to three other destinations in Hawaii: Kona, Lihue and Kahului. It also flies to Hawaii from several other West Coast cities and from Anchorage.
Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air are owned by Seattle-based Alaska Air Group Inc. Shares of the parent company fell 79 cents, or 1.2 percent, to $65.74 in midday trading.
