We've been awaiting the arrival of those super-cheap Hawaii flights for months now, and as Travel+Leisure reports, the day has finally come. Due to new flights to the islands from United Airlines and Hawaiian Airlines, in addition to United's increased service starting this past June, a so-called "fare war" has officially begun. Customers can now fly to the Pacific Islands for as little as $344 round-trip.
As the Airfare Spot points out, you can now secure these cheap flights on Alaskan, Delta, United, and Hawaiian airlines. The cheapest nonstop flights are out of San Francisco and Oakland, where travelers can snag them for as low as $344 round-trip. Flights from Portland are only $20 more, and the savings extend as far as New York City, where travelers can snag $603 round-trip flights to the Hawaiian islands.
