2017 brought significant changes to Hawaii airline service
In 2017, three airlines announced they would resume or launch service in Hawaii, while existing Hawaii carriers ramped up planned service, reflecting category growth . Perhaps most notably, Dallas-based Southwest Airlines (LUV) announced in October that it would enter the Hawaii market with ticket sales beginning in 2018, though specific routes and timing have not yet been revealed. Most recently, the airline was reported to be working with the Federal Aviation Administration to receive ETOPS, or Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards, which is mandated for carriers servicing a route that contains a point further than one hour flying time from a diversion airport.
