Seattle-based Alaska Airlines is to launch a new service between the US mainland and Maui, Hawaii. Year-round daily flights between Seattle and Kahului on the island of Maui are scheduled to begin July 17. Seasonal flights between Anchorage and Kahului will operate twice a week from October 31 to April 25, 2009. Tickets went on sale this morning.

“When we announced the start of our long-awaited service to Honolulu and Kauai last year, our customers were delighted, and they immediately began asking when Alaska Airlines would offer flights to Maui and other destinations in Hawaii,” said Gregg Saretsky, Alaska Airlines’ executive vice president of flight and marketing. “The time has come for us to expand the leisure travel options we can offer our customers and Mileage Plan members.”

The new flights will provide convenient connections to travelers in other cities served by Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air throughout the Pacific Northwest and state of Alaska.

Flights from Seattle will depart daily at 8:20 a.m. Pacific time and arrive at 11:35 a.m. Hawaii time. Return flights will depart at 1:05 p.m. Hawaii time and arrive at 9:45 p.m. Pacific time.

Flights from Anchorage will depart Fridays and Saturdays at 2:20 p.m. Alaska time and arrive in Maui at 6:35 p.m. Hawaii time. Return flights will depart at 8:45 p.m. Hawaii time and arrive at 5 a.m. Alaska time.

The new flights will be operated with Boeing 737-800 aircraft, accommodating 16 passengers in first class and 141 in the main cabin.

All flights will offer Alaska’s Northern Bites service, which allows coach passengers to purchase a meal onboard for $5. Inflight service also will include Alaska Airlines’ digEplayer, a personal entertainment system offering a variety of movies, television shows, music and other features. Complimentary in first class, digEplayers are available for $10 in coach.
