Summer may be over but there's plenty of time to plan for next season. Allegiant Air will exit Hawaii later this year, while Alaska Airlines will take over Virgin America's flights in April 2018.

Southwest President Tom Nealon said the airline's new service will be "a game-changer in the USA -to-Hawaii market during an announcement from Honolulu's Waikiki Beach". Company officials said they could not say yet when the service will begin.

"Those Southwest shockwaves of our terrific value and bar-setting Customer Service will be a game-changing addition in the USA transpacific market", the post stated. Even if Hawaii flights start in 2018, they won't alter fleet or capacity plans for the year, the company said. The initial service will be from California, said Chief Revenue Officer Andrew Watterson, without elaborating on specific routes.
