Last month, we wrote about the possibility that Virgin America might be expanding to Hawaii, and it look it’s now official as Virgin America just announced that they would be launching non-stop service to San Francisco to both Maui and Honolulu.

To celebrate, they are offering fares from $49 on some of their current routes for travel booked by Wednesday, April 8, 2015. In addition, they have their new Hawaii routes on sale for $199 each way.

Virgin America is having a 2-day sale with flights starting at $49.

I think it’s great that Virgin America is launching this new service to Hawaii, though from San Francisco, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and Hawaiian Airlines currently offer service to the Hawaiian Islands, so the competition will become even more fierce.
