Southwest Airlines said it plans to begin flightsÂ to Hawaii, with tickets on sale beginning next year.
The airline, which has made no secret of its plans to fly to the vacation hotspot, made it official with events in Honolulu and Los Angeles on Wednesday night.
Southwest did not announce routes or timing of the flights.
ButÂ SouthwestÂ CEO Gary Kelly has previously said the initial routes will not include Phoenix to Hawaii. Currently only American Airlines and HawaiianÂ Airlines offer non-stop service to Hawaii from Phoenix.
