Airlines that Fly Direct to Hawaii from the U.S. Mainland
Who flies to Maui, Kauai, Lanai, Big Island Hawaii, Oahu, and Molokai:
** Check with site for any changes. ** You can fly on almost any airline and get anywhere in Hawaii as most airlines will use partners to get you where they don’t fly.
This list shows airlines that have direct flights to any Hawaiian Airport, usually meaning less stops and plane transfers.
Hawaiian Airlines Flies to Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, the Big Island, and Kauai.
America West – US Airways Flies from Phoenix, Arizona to Kona on the Big Island, Kahului on Maui, Honolulu on Oahu, and Lihue on Kauai. Flys from Las Vegas to Kahului
American Airlines Flies to Kona on the Big Island, Maui, Oahu, and Kauai.
Continental Airlines Flies to Honolulu, Hilo (starting mid 2011) and Maui. Apparently Continental and Delta are now one airline.
Delta Delta flies to Honolulu, Maui, and Kona on the Big Island
United Airlines Flies into Honolulu, Oahu
Note – This list occasionally changes. An easy way to check what airlines fly directly into whatever island you are checking is to go to a fare checking site like expedia or cheapoair and search for your flight.
An easy to read table and a list will pop up with available airlines into your desired city. I like cheapoair.
Note – Aloha Airlines and ATA airlines used to be on this list but both have gone bankrupt and stopped flying. – plus, NorthWest used to fly to Kailua-Kona, Maui, and Oahu but they’ve merged with Delta, so they go where Delta goes.
At this time (2010) the only major Hawaii airport that no airlines flies into is Hilo
*** update, january 2011*** Continental will fly into Hilo starting sometime this year, so you may get lucky – you’ve got to take a connector flight from somewhere else.
