Just in time for the holidays, Alaska Airlines begins nonstop service today between Sacramento International Airport and Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keāhole on the Island of Hawaii.

Alaska Airlines is expanding access to the Hawaiian Islands for Northern California residents looking to head to the beach. The new, three-times weekly flight is the only nonstop and fastest way for Sacramentans to get to visit the largest of the Hawaiian Islands. Alaska also offers nonstop service from Sacramento to Maui, Hawaii.

“Our Sacramento guests can start their vacation the minute they step onto the plane, with our assigned seating, plentiful in-flight entertainment, and delicious food and beverage menu – including Hawaiian-favorite POG juice,” said Annabel Chang, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of Bay Area. “We are excited to share the Aloha vibes with our Norcal flyers by offering the most nonstop flights from the West Coast to Hawaii, what we call #MostWestCoast.”
