More airline routes to Hawaii good news for golfers
Earlier this month, Hawaiian Airlines announced that it has added non-stops from and to New York, which means it’s easier than ever to get to golf paradise.
In conjunction with its code-share partner Jet-Blue, Hawaiian Airlines is offering its first non-stop service from JFK, which could open up more routes from the northeast. It also means competition for United, which already had those routes from the East Coast, and competition, we can hope, will mean slightly lower prices or at least keep them in check. In addition, carriers like Alaska Airlines have also been ramping up their service to Hawaii, which continues to increase in popularity among golfers.
Of course, a non-stop from New York to Honolulu takes about 12 hours, which just means you have more time to dream about all the great golf courses you’d play over there. Once you get to Honolulu, you can set up inter-island trips.
I recommend that first time visitors try to do at least a couple of different islands since there’s so much diversity between them. No two are alike. My last trip was to the Big Island, which you can read about here.
But I also like the golf on the other islands, including Honolulu and Oahu, which offers the most nightlife.
A golf vacation anywhere to Hawaii is always a winner, even this time of year. In fact, this might be the time to get some deals in terms of accommodations, greens fees and airline tickets. Check it out.
