Passengers flying out of Bellingham International Airport (BLI) will have convenient access to some of Hawaii’s best snorkeling and the world-famous Hawaii Volcanoes National Park starting November 12 when Alaska Airlines begins new weekly service between Bellingham and Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii. The new service complements the airline’s seasonal service from BLI to Maui which is set to begin on November 6.
“The Big Island of Hawaii is one of the top rated travel destinations in the world and we are delighted Alaska Airlines is going to provide our customers with non-stop service to this incredible location,” said Sunil Harman, Aviation Director. “Alaska Airlines is offering very competitive fares and we anticipate high demand for these flights.”
At more than 4,000 square miles, the Big Island is twice as big as the other Hawaiian islands combined. The Big Island offers diverse terrain ranging from black sand beaches to snow-capped peaks; from lava deserts to lush rainforests. One of the more popular tourist attractions is Hawaii Volcanoes National Park where visitors can drive 11 miles around the steaming caldera of the fire-spitting Kilauea volcano.
Alaska Airlines is offering one-way fares to Kona starting at $219. The flights will be operated with Boeing 737-800 aircraft, accommodating 16 passengers in first class and 147 in the main cabin.
With inexpensive flights, cheap parking, short security lines and a low-stress atmosphere; BLI recently scored the highest customer satisfaction rating for any airport in the nation. Parking coupons are available at www.flybliparking.com
