Prices on flights to Kauai are about to improve significantly.
Starting in early 2018, Hawaiian Airlines will take delivery of a new fleet of A321neo aircraft that will allow for many new nonstop flights from the mainland to Kauai. That will help reduce prices through greater competition.
Alaska will also begin to receive their fleet of new Boeing 737MAX aircraft.
Both of these new extended range jets will be the fleets used to Kauai from most west coast cities and beyond. They have a range of nearly 4,000 miles, which opens new possibilities.
Don’t forget Southwest Airlines. Southwest Airlines flights to Hawaii will start in the not distant future as well and Kauai should be on their flight schedule. We expect to see new flights announced before the end of 2017 with service from Oakland, San Diego, and more. Look for this announcement to also help with competition and flight pricing.
Current Pricing Barometer.
Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding airports continue to have stable pricing due to limited competition. Airfares from both areas vary by sale and by season, but generally range from the mid $400’s to $500’s for low season travel. High season travel starts about $200 higher.
Seattle and Portland will see improving airfares to. Delta is set to start nonstop flights from Seattle to Lihue in December, and Delta will compete head-on with Alaska Airlines. This is also having a positive affect on flights from Portland and you hope to see new Kauai flights from that city as well.
When to Travel for Lowest Airfares in 2017 and 2018.
Cheapest travel dates in 2017 will be now through June 8 and then August 13 through December 14 (except Thanksgiving). Best pricing in 2018, will be for travel from January 7 through March 16, then starting April 9 until early June.
When to Buy Tickets to Kauai for 2017 and 2018.
Availability during low season generally is not an issue and typically best buys are about three months in advance of travel, though not always.
For peak summer, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring Break travel: Buy as far in advance as possible. Tickets are available 330 days in advance of flights.
For low season travel: Spring airfare sales are now in process. Fall airfare sales could begin at any time and continue through summer and fall. Winter 2018 travel deals will begin later in 2017.
