This is one not to wait on. Alaska Airlines has a fare sale for flights to some of the most popular destinations in Hawaii. If your schedule is flexible in April and May and you live in Alaska or on the west coast, this deal may be too tempting to resist. The travel window for this sale is April 10 through May 22 of this year. There are some restrictions that vary by city, so be sure to read them before you book.

You must book your flights by the end of the day on Thursday, March 21. Moving forward, these types of deals will most likely be sent to those customers who sign up for Alaska Air’s new monthly subscription service. The service, dubbed “Alaska Access,” costs $5 a month and promises to give subscribers advance notice on the airline’s best sales.

Another way to simplify your search is to click the calendar view to see the lowest fares available for a specific month. For example, we did it for flights to Kauai from San Diego, and found a number of dates with available departure and return flights at the $99 rate.


April is a good month to find a bargain flight from Southern California to Hawaii. For example, this itinerary from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) is only $228 roundtrip.


The best price we found from Anchorage, one of the carrier’s signature hubs, to the Hawaiian Islands was this Honolulu itinerary in April for just under $475 roundtrip.
