Allegiant airlines announced that it will begin service from Fresno to Honolulu, Hawaii beginning June 30.
The flights will depart Sundays from Fresno Yosemite International Airport at 9:10 a.m. and arrive at Honolulu International Airport at 11:55 a.m. Returning flights will land in Fresno Saturdays at 9:25 p.m.
Introductory fares will be as low as $174 for one-way flights if passengers book their flights by April 30. That special rate will last until Nov. 13.
In addition, the airline will also begin flights from Honolulu to Las Vegas on June 29.
"The announcement of service to Hawaii is a great achievement for Allegiant," said Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant president, in a press release. "Service to Las Vegas and Fresno reflects a moderate growth plan by our company. With the addition of the four aircraft we have acquisitioned, we plan to expand service to other mainland cities in the future. We anticipate the service will be very popular, especially when customers take advantage of Allegiant's low pricing when bundling their air, hotel and car rental package."
Allegiant Air currently offers flights from Fresno to Las Vegas for as low as $35.80, with four weekly departures on Sunday, Monday, Thursday and Friday.
Reservations can be made on the company's website at allegiant.com.
Allegiant Air, founded in 1997 in Fresno, flies to nearly 80 destinations around the country.
