(KGTV) — Southwest Airlines has completed its first flight to Hawaii, though it's not ready for consumers yet.
The airlines this month completed its first test flight to Honolulu International Airport with only crew aboard as part of Southwest's effort to prove to the agency it's ready to start offering service to the island.
Southwest announced in April 2018 that it intends to start offering service from California to Hawaii. Nonstop flights will be offered from Oakland, San Diego, San Jose, and Sacramento airports to Honolulu International, Lihue, Kona International (Keahole), and Kahului airports.
The airline hasn't announced fares for travel yet, but the test flight may have sparked some competition from rival airlines.
A Feb. 28 to March 4 search on Google Flights showed fares as low as $303 to Hawaii destinations from San Diego. Multiple outlets have also reported lower fares from other California cities following Southwest's successful test.
To follow Southwest's progress in offering trips to Hawaii, the airline has set up a specific website page.
