Hawaiian Airlines this week announced three new year-round routes from the West Coast of the United States to Hawaii.

Starting in early 2018, travelers will find new flights from Portland, Oregon, to Kahului; Los Angeles to Kona; and Oakland, California to Lihue. All three routes offer non-stop daily service.

Hawaiian Airlines will roll out additional routes between the end of 2017 and 2020, thanks to the delivery of a new fleet of fuel-efficient Airbus A321neos.

“Demand from the western United States remains very strong,” Peter Ingram, Hawaiian's executive vice president and chief commercial officer, told Travel + Leisure.

While Hawaiian couldn't report on the specific pricing for these routes, they promised “competitive fares.”

Recently, United Airlines announced increased service on 11 routes to Hawaii, and Southwest Airlines has revealed ambitions for flights to the Aloha State — meaning the competition is nothing if not tough.

As airlines vie for these coveted flights to the Hawaiian islands — and introduce more energy efficient aircraft — travelers should expect fares to drop into the $300s — and even into the high-$200s.
