As an island state, Hawaii has some of the strictest regulations in place for visitors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since it has reopened and offered a pre-travel testing option for entry, many flights to the island have slowly resumed.

Round-trip flights to Hawaii from the continental U.S. range from as low as $250 to more than $2,000, with prices varying due to time of year, airport, airline and booking service. In economy class, round-trip tickets between most U.S. cities and Honolulu cost between $500 and $800. The best way to save on tickets is to travel off-peak and to book your trip two to three months in advance.

Cheapest time to fly to Hawaii

Previously, the cheapest time to travel to Hawaii was during its off-peak months: after the winter holiday season, between the middle of April and late summer, and before Thanksgiving. When it came to Hawaii travel, there used to be clear peak and off-peak months where flight prices were much more predictable.

For 2021, the cheapest time to fly to Hawaii won't follow any trends from previous years, as the pandemic continues to affect the travel industry.

You can find some excellent flight deals to Hawaii scattered throughout 2021, except around holidays like the Fourth of July and Christmas. Car rentals and hotel bookings will also be much more expensive during peak season. June 2021 looks to be the most expensive month for Hawaii travel, although ticket prices can continue to fluctuate.

You can expect to pay around $350 to $900 for an economy class round trip to Hawaii from the East Coast or Midwest during an off-peak month. From major West Coast cities, round-trips in the off-peak season tend to cost between $160 and $500.

Regardless of when you choose to travel, you should book your tickets about two to three months in advance. Ticket prices will rapidly increase about two weeks out.

Cheapest airport to fly into Hawaii

The cheapest flights to Hawaii generally land in Honolulu at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL), Hawaii's capital, or at Kahului Airport (OGG), on Maui. This is because it's the cheapest to fly to and from the busiest airports in a region, and both HNL and OGG are accessible to the most popular vacation destinations in Hawaii.

As seen in the table below, continental U.S. flight prices to HNL and OGG are roughly similar, so it's worth comparing flights to both airports to find the best price.

Route
Price
Off-peak flight (March 2021)LAX to HNL$163
LAX to OGG$156
JFK to HNL$335
JFK to OGG$335
Peak flight (June 2021)LAX to HNL$279
LAX to OGG$348
JFK to HNL$473
JFK to OGG$474

If you're not set on a specific destination within Hawaii, you can use a flight search engine like Kayak to compare flight costs from your home airport to HNL and OGG airports to find the most budget-friendly round trip. Both Honolulu (on Oahu island) and Kahului (on Maui) are either home to or surrounded by popular Hawaiian vacation spots.


Best and worst cities for flying to Hawaii

To give you a better idea of Hawaii flight prices, we looked at the cost of round-trip tickets to Honolulu from airports across the U.S. We sampled roughly 10 to 20 cities per region and selected airports from the top 100 U.S. airports in 2019. Using Google Flights and the Southwest Airlines website, we compared only nonstop or one-stop trips for a set itinerary — April 11 departure, April 17 return — and identified the cheapest itinerary. We disqualified itineraries that included more than one layover or that had a travel time greater than 15 hours for the most accurate comparison.

In general, major cities in the West offer the most affordable fares to Hawaii. Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines and United Airlines offered nonstop, round-trip flights out of Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and Sacramento, Calif. starting at just $247. A close second was Hawaiian's Portland to Honolulu nonstop route at $311. United's Las Vegas to Honolulu was the third cheapest at $353.

U.S. cities with the cheapest round trips to Honolulu

The cheapest eligible round trip at 53 of the 63 major airports we surveyed was between $400 and $800. In general, cities with more expensive flights tended to be the farthest from Hawaii or in low-traffic areas. Below is a list of round-trip flight prices to Hawaii by city.

Flights from the West will always be the most affordable due to the region's proximity to Hawaii. The four California airports had the cheapest airfares by far, with plenty of nonstop options from Alaska, American, Hawaiian and United. Flights from Portland were surprisingly affordable, too, starting at just $311 for a non-stop flight on Hawaiian. The more niche airports — such as Anchorage, Alaska (ANC) and Jackson Hole, Wyo. (JAC), had much more expensive flights — as high as $725 per round trip.

Best airlines that fly to Hawaii

In general, the best airline for you will depend on your itinerary, price range, desired comfort and tolerance for layovers. However, of the airlines that fly to Hawaii from the continental U.S. — Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Sun Country Airlines and United Airlines — there are a few that consistently provide the cheapest flights.

From the New York-New Jersey metro area, United Airlines offers the best deal — a round trip from Newark, N.J. (EWR) to Honolulu (HNL) with one layover for $338. From the West Coast, flight prices are as low as $163 on American Airlines and United Airlines — and are direct flights.

These flights were pulled from the least expensive flights from Feb. 16 to March 24, 2021 (with the exception of Sun Country Airlines, which does not resume their Hawaii service until June 2021). At the time of writing, these dates offered the cheapest flights during off-peak season and about two to three months in advance.

When flight prices are similar among airlines — or if the price is less of a factor for you — it can help to compare carriers on comfort and convenience. Consider whether you're willing to have one or two layovers or if you'd prefer to fly nonstop. You may also want to choose an airline based on their rewards incentives, especially if you're already a member of a frequent-flyer program.

If you're looking for the cheapest way to get to Hawaii and are willing to do some comparison shopping, the best option is to use a flight comparison tool like Momondo or Hopper. These services find the cheapest fares possible by searching airline websites and online travel agencies like Expedia and Priceline. Hopper, which is exclusively on mobile, also partners with airlines to offer exclusive deals.

How to fly to Hawaii with points

One way to reduce the cost of plane tickets is to redeem credit card rewards or airline loyalty miles you've built up over time. If you're a member of a credit card rewards program, like Chase Ultimate Rewards, your card issuer likely has at least one airline transfer partner that offers flights to Hawaii. For airline loyalty program members, be sure to check if your airline flies to Hawaii or allows miles transfers to an airline that does.

Below, we've included the points required to fly from the contiguous U.S. to Hawaii on the seven leading carriers. Note that point value varies between carriers, so fewer points to purchase a ticket do not necessarily mean a cheaper flight.

ValuePenguin's verdict

As Hawaii has opened up to tourists, many airlines have slowly resumed their flights to the island. There are a number of ways to book cheap flight deals to Hawaii through 2021, whether it's by flying from a particular destination or using your airline miles. While it's most affordable to fly from the West Coast across the board, you can find considerable deals from cities such as Dallas, St. Louis and New York City. It's worth checking multiple airports around your area, as flight prices can vary by hundreds of dollars.
