(KGTV) --San Diego's coastlines, views, and sunsets are worth our hard-earned incomes. But if you're chasing a getaway to, say, Hawaii just for reassurance, a trip to the islands got a lot less expensive.

Southwest Airlines is now offering direct flights from San Diego International Airport to airports located on Maui, Oahu, and Kona. Hey, Making It In San Diego also means budgeting for vacations.

As of Monday morning, flights were as low as $88 one-way.

Southwest announced in April 2018 that it intends to start offering service from California to Hawaii. Nonstop flights will be offered from San Diego, Oakland, San Jose, and Sacramento airports to Honolulu International, Lihue, Kona International (Keahole), and Kahului airports.

Last month, the airlines 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.
