Do you live in Los Angeles? Do you want to visit Hawai’i? Great news!

Virgin America just announced that it will launch nonstop flights between Los Angeles International Airport and both Honolulu, Oahu and Kahului, Maui. Flights to Honolulu will begin on May 5, 2016, with flights to Kahului beginning on June 14, 2016.

Virgin already flies direct to Hawai’i from San Francisco, which has been great for NoCal passengers looking to reach the island state. Now—finally!—SoCal travelers can join in the fun.

“Since we launched our Hawai’i service last year, we’ve seen firsthand why it is one of the most popular leisure destinations among West Coast travelers,” said David Cush, Virgin America’s President and CEO. “This new service from LAX not only brings this world class destination to our guests and Elevate members in the Los Angeles area, it opens up a number of roundtrip connecting flights to markets across the country.”
