Alaska Airlines will begin direct service from Anchorage to Kahului Maui twice a week, beginning in October. They will also begin a year-round direct Maui to Seattle service on July 17 2008. This is the result of ATA and Aloha Airlines pulling out of Maui. This is exciting news for our neighbors to the north! I hope this means we'll see plenty of Alaskans on our beaches this winter.
Flying to Maui directly, as opposed to changing planes in Honolulu is a real benefit for travelers... it shaves a couple of hours off your travel time, making for a much more pleasant experience.
Alaska Airlines is offering introductory one way fares of $249.00 for Seattle to Maui and Anchorage to Maui flights, if you buy your tickets by April 24 and travel by Dec. 17. Other restrictions apply. Flights from Anchorage will depart Fridays and Saturdays. Take advantage of this inaugural new service to Maui.
Call 1 800 ALASKAAIR or visit their website for more details. See you at the beach!

Maybe I'll even be tempted to fly to Alaska now, that's something I've always wanted to do!
