Alaska Airlines announced Thursday it had launched its new nonstop service between Sacramento International Airport and Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keahole on the Island of Hawaii.
The airline’s new service to Hawaii will be offered three times a week, departing from Kona on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and returning from Sacramento on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
“Our Sacramento guests can start their vacation the minute they step onto the plane, with our assigned seating, plentiful in-flight entertainment, and delicious food and beverage menu – including Hawaiian-favorite POG juice,” Alaska vice president Annabel Chang said in a statement. “We are excited to share the Aloha vibes with our Norcal flyers by offering the most nonstop flights from the West Coast to Hawaii, what we call #MostWestCoast.”
