Southwest to Hawaii from $49 / 2K points!

Southwest has begun selling tickets to Hawaii this morning. We’re seeing $49(!!) fares (or just 1,950 Rapid Rewards points) from Oakland and San Jose to Maui and Honolulu, with service beginning March 17, 2019. We will post with more information soon, but we wanted to get this post out ASAP so readers could get a first crack at these fares.

For some reason, the taxes come out a bit higher than other domestic flights at $14.90.

Although, oddly, adding a Companion still only costs $5.60.

That said, I have been getting an error upon trying to add a companion, so I’m not totally sure what the deal is at the moment.

Update: I did not initially see connecting itineraries, but it seems they are available, just not from all airports. Here’s one from Phoenix.

More to come.
