This is a remarkable deal when you consider that normal pricing for these flights, operated by Alaska Airlines, typically run closer to $900 round-rip.
Once you're there, you can hike through the state’s gorgeous parks, visit active volcanoes, paddle out into the waves along the North Shore of Oahu, or simply sit by the the crystal blue seashore and drink a frozen cocktail. Or maybe go crazy and do all of those things in one trip. It’s Hawaii after all; you really can do all that and more.
