Tickets for Southwest Airlines flights to Hawaii on sale for as low as $49

Paradise is within your grasp, especially if you live in California.

Introductory fares start at $49 one way for travel into mid-June, according to Southwest's website.

The Dallas Morning News reports the first flights will take off on March 17 and are now listed as cheaply as $49 one-way.

The airline didn't formally announce the start of ticket sales but quietly launched a Hawaii ticket portal Monday.

Although speed limits exist in most countries he said that people are still exceeding those limits by a wide margin. For some background, within the current Volvo range, the lowest top speed is 118mph, and the highest is 155mph.

Passengers could fly between Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in Honolulu as early as March 19, and to Kahului Airport on April 8. Southwest proved to the FAA that they can do long-haul, over ocean flights just like the other larger airlines that serve the Hawaiian islands.

Southwest's entry into the Hawaiian market will be closely watched, with many hoping increased competition will lead to lower fares.

Southwest Airlines officials previous year announced that it planned to fly to Hawaii from four California cities: San Diego, Sacramento, San Jose and Oakland. Details about flights to and from Lihue, on Kauai, will also be announced soon.
