Southwest on Wednesday received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to conduct long, over-water flights to Hawaii. Its CEO previously said the airline could begin its Hawaii service a month after receiving the approval. The first passengers onboard a Hawaii test for Southwest Airlines debarked on the tarmac on Feb. 5 at the Terminal G area at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.
