Alaska Airlines is expanding access to the Hawaiian Islands for Northern California residents looking to head to the beach with new flights between Sacramento and Kona. The new, three-times weekly flight is the only nonstop and fastest way for Sacramentans to get to visit the largest of the Hawaiian Islands. Alaska also offers nonstop service from Sacramento to Maui, Hawaii.
“Our Sacramento guests can start their vacation the minute they step onto the plane, with our assigned seating, plentiful in-flight entertainment, and delicious food and beverage menu – including Hawaiian-favorite POG juice,” said Annabel Chang, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of Bay Area. “We are excited to share the Aloha vibes with our Norcal flyers by offering the most nonstop flights from the West Coast to Hawaii, what we call #MostWestCoast.”
Sacramento-Kona Flight Schedules:
Flight 846 departs Kona at 12:00 p.m., arrives Sacramento at 7:25 p.m.
Flight 847 departs Sacramento at 11:45 a.m., arrives Kona at 3:50 p.m.
Both flights operate Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday only
Alaska averages 29 daily departures to the Hawaiian Islands from 10 West Coast cities, which includes six California destinations: Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland.
“Alaska Airlines has been a wonderful partner of ours for over a decade, and we are grateful for this new service to support guests wishing to have an easier connection point to the Hawaiian Islands from Northern California,” said Island of Hawaii Visitors Bureau Executive Director Ross Birch. “With the direct route from Sacramento to Kona, visitors can easily experience our destination’s beautiful scenery, exciting activities, and delicious local cuisine.”
