Alaska Airlines announces daily San Diego-Honolulu service

Alaska Airlines is offering a special introductory fare of $149* each way for tickets purchased by July 25, 2011, for travel from Nov. 17 through Dec. 15, 2011. In addition, customers can bundle and save with an Alaska Airlines Vacation package to Honolulu, with roundtrip air fare and three nights’ hotel from $489** per person.

To celebrate the new service, Alaska Airlines is partnering with San Diego radio stations to give away a plane’s worth of tickets to Honolulu at locations throughout the city this week. The “Nuts for Honolulu” events will invite listeners and community members to wear Hawaiian clothing at locations to be revealed by the radio stations for a chance to win 160 tickets and other prizes. 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:

•Tuesday, July 19: KHTS 93.3 FM (Channel 933)

•Wednesday, July 20: KIFM Smooth 98.1 FM

“We’re nuts about Hawaii and thrilled to be bringing our low fares and award-winning service to the San Diego-Honolulu market,” said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of marketing. “We want to share this excitement with San Diegans and we think giving away a plane’s worth of seats to Hawaii is just the ticket.”

“We’re pleased to support Alaska’s new route between Honolulu and San Diego,” said Thella Bowens, president/CEO of the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority. “The expanded service will further connect our two communities and will provide yet another option for San Diegans to visit one of the nation’s premier vacation destinations.”
