Alaska Airlines announces new OAK/SJC - Honolulu service

Alaska Airlines today announced new daily nonstop service between Honolulu and Oakland and Honolulu and San Jose, Calif., marking the latest in a series of new Hawaii routes introduced by the carrier this year. The Honolulu service begins April 10, 2012, and complements Alaska Airlines' existing daily nonstop flights from Oakland and San Jose to Hawaii's other three major destinations: Kona, on the Big Island; Lihue, on the island of Kauai; and Kahului, Maui.

Alaska Airlines is offering a special introductory fare of $149* each way for tickets purchased by Nov. 4, 2011, for travel between April 10 and June 9, 2012.

To celebrate the new service, Alaska Airlines is partnering with Bay Area radio stations to give away an airplane's worth of tickets**. The "Nuts for Honolulu" campaign, which launches today, invites listeners to participate on-air for a chance to win 160 tickets to Honolulu, Kona, Kauai and Maui throughout the week. Details about each day's contest are also available by using the Twitter hashtag #nuts4honolulu.

Customers can tune in to these radio stations for complete contest information: Alaska Airlines offers nine daily flights to Hawaii from Oakland, San Jose and Sacramento including the new service announced today. During the peak winter travel season, Alaska Airlines offers 24 flights a day to Hawaii from Anchorage and seven West Coast cities, including Bellingham, Seattle, Portland, San Diego as well as Oakland, San Jose and Sacramento.

"These new flights provide customers in the Bay Area with convenient daily service to all four of the major Hawaiian Islands, including the Big Island, Maui, Kauai and now Oahu," said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines' vice president of marketing. "We're nuts about Hawaii and thrilled to be giving away a plane's worth of seats to the Hawaiian Islands to celebrate."
