If you’ve been putting off that long dreamed of and richly deserved Hawaii vacation, I’m about to give you one less reason to keep waiting: Continental Airlines recently launched a slew of new flights from Southern California to Hawaii.
- Los Angeles to Maui: The new flight departs daily at 5:05 a.m. and arrives at 8:45 p.m. local time, with return flights leaving at 10:15 p.m. and arriving at LAX at 5:45 a.m.
- Los Angeles to Honolulu: Continental has added a second daily flight between LAX and Honolulu, up from its single-flight service.
- Orange County to Maui: Flights departing at 5:40 p.m. and arriving in Maui at 9:25 p.m. now take place 4 times a week, but will increase to daily service in summer to accommodate demand. Return flights leave Maui at 12:10 a.m. and touch down in Orange County at 7:45 a.m.
- Orange County to Honolulu: The new daily flight departs Orange County at 9:00 a.m. and arrives in Honolulu at 12:45 p.m. Return passengers can hop a flight back to Orange county at 2:00 p.m., arriving at 9:35 p.m. California time.
And here’s a few more great reasons to make haste to Hawaii now: the Orbitz Summer Hotel Sale, which can help you score a third night free plus daily breakfast for two at select hotels, and super flight deals to Hawaii from both United Airlines and Hawaiian Airlines. Book your hotel and air together as well, and you can also benefit from great Hawaii travel package deals.
