Alaska Airlines on Sunday will inaugurate year-round service to Lihue on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, becoming the only airline to fly the route nonstop.
Alaska launched Seattle-Honolulu service on Oct. 12 and will begin Anchorage-Honolulu service on Dec. 9.
"Prized for its dramatic beauty, the island of Kauai is one of Hawaii's most popular destinations, making this new route the perfect complement to our new Honolulu service," said Gregg Saretsky, Alaska Airlines' executive vice president of flight and marketing. "Customers from the Pacific Northwest now have a convenient way to visit the 'garden isle' without having to change planes."
The new daily Seattle-Lihue flights depart Seattle-Tacoma International Airport at 4:20 p.m. Pacific time and arrive in Lihue at 7:45 p.m. Hawaii time. Return flights depart Lihue at 9:15 p.m. Hawaii time and arrive in Seattle at 5:55 a.m. Pacific time. The schedule offers convenient connections for travelers in other cities served by Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air throughout the Pacific Northwest and state of Alaska.
The new flights are operated with Boeing 737-800 aircraft, accommodating 16 passengers in first class and 141 in the main cabin.
Alaska Airlines and its sister carrier, Horizon Air, serve 92 cities through an expansive network in Alaska, the Lower 48, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico.
