Let’s all fly to Hawaii cheap on Southwest Airlines! Chief Executive Officer Gary Kelly said in an interview Thursday. Southwest Airlines is “very close” to gaining approval for extended flights above the Pacific from California and expects to begin service during the peak winter season. Horray!
“We’re going to ramp up pretty aggressively, but with a gradual increase in flight activity,” Kelly said at Bloomberg News headquarters in New York.
The Dallas-based airline said in July 2017 that it would begin flights to Hawaii. Once the Federal Aviation Administration gives the go-ahead, marketing could begin almost immediately and flights soon thereafter, he said Thursday.
“Weeks, not months,” Kelly said. “We’re ready to roll.”
