Allegaint to Begin US West Coast to Hawaii Flights

Allegiant begins Fresno & Las Vegas to Honolulu, Hawaii | Waikiki Beach from Diamond Head | Airline News

Fresno & Las Vegas to Honolulu

Allegiant Airlines announces non-stop Boeing 757-200 flights between the US West Coast and Hawaii.  The new flights will provide more west coast consumers the ability to visit the Hawaiian Islands for new, low prices, with the chance to be “leid” upon arrival.

Honolulu, on the island of Oahu, offers the world renowned shopping, activities plus the world famous Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head.

The initial flights announced are:

  • Fresno Yosemite International Airport (FAT) to Honolulu International Airport (HNL), and
  • Las Vegas (LAS) to Honolulu International Airport (HNL).

Allegiant will offer introductory fares as low as $174 one-way, limited availability.

The airline has acquired additional Boeing 757-200 aircraft and has cancelled existing Boeing 757 routes, which included routes such as Lexington (LEX) to Las Vegas (LAS).  However, its it’s confirmed Allegiant has acquired four additional Boeing 757-200’s and the carrier is in the process of obtaining final ETOPS regulatory approval for the aircraft.

Word on the street is Allegiant is looking at additional west coast markets for Hawaiian service, but no further announcements have been made.

The Boeing 757-200, a single aisle aircraft with 3×3 seating, is also popular aircraft choice among legacy airlines between points on the west coast and Hawaii.

Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant president, said, “Service to Las Vegas and Fresno reflects a moderate growth plan by our company. With the addition of the four aircraft we have acquisitioned, we plan to expand service to other mainland cities in the future. We anticipate the service will be very popular, especially when customers take advantage of Allegiant’s low pricing when bundling their air, hotel and car rental package.”

Allegiant is an innovative low cost carrier which not only operates flights, but also offers full package deals including ground-transportation, hotels, and even activities to its customers.  The carrier also provides service in under-served niche markets where demand exists for leisure destinations using its MD-83 and MD-87 aircraft.

(1*) For those unfamiliar, ETOPS is Extended Operators, a set of strict requirements which allow an aircraft, especially a twin-engine like the Boeing 757, to operate longer distances between diversion airports.  The old joke goes “Engines Turn or Plane Swims” when it comes to the ETOPS acronym, but in addition to twin-engine aircraft, newer multi-engined planes such as the 747-8 have received ETOPS approval.
