SAN DIEGO–Southwest Airlines begins its inaugural flight from San Diego International Airport to Honolulu, Hawaii through Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.
This is the first time Southwest has provided daily, nonstop service from San Diego to Hawaii.
“We’ve been anticipating this route for many months and welcome Southwest’s new daily service to Honolulu,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President and CEO. “There has always been high demand for leisure travel to both San Diego and Honolulu, and with a military presence in each city, a desire to visit friends and family. We appreciate Southwest’s continued investment in our city as they add Hawaii to their expanding list of nonstop markets from San Diego.”
Passengers traveling to Hawaii are encouraged to review the state’s travel policy which includes a pre-travel testing program, the Mandatory State of Hawaii Travel and Health Form, and temperature screening upon arrival. Passengers are also encouraged to review Southwest’s COVID-19 travel recommendations and procedures.
San Diego recently achieved Airports Council International’s (ACI) Airport Health Accreditation for its “Let’s Go Safely” program which prioritizes the health and safety of passengers, employees and the community through a number of modifications and improvements at the airport. Health and safety modifications that have been implemented throughout the terminals, Rental Car Center, Parking Plaza, and Airport Authority administration building include increased cleaning of high touch points, electrostatic spraying, signage on preventive health measures, floor decals, and seat separation signage to queue six-foot social distance, hand sanitizer stations, Plexiglas sneeze guards in certain public spaces, and facial coverings required on all airport property.
