Alaska Airlines has a new nonstop route to the island of Kauai, Hawaii from San Diego, California. The nonstop route will be flying daily from June 7, 2013, until Aug. 20, 2013, which then the service will switch to four days a week and will be the first and only nonstop service to the “Garden Isle.”
Currently, United Airlines, American Airlines and Delta Air Lines offer a one-stop service and Hawaiian Airlines makes a stop in Honolulu before continuing onto Kauai.
Flights booked for travel between June 7, and Aug. 20 are eligible to earn double miles with the Alaska’s Mileage program, but the promotion is only available for a limited time and must be booked through the promotional web offer.
In addition to the new nonstop Kauai service, Alaska Airlines will also be offering nonstop services to Boston from San Diego with a limited time offer of earning double miles. To qualify for the double miles, flights must be booked for travel between March 29, 2013, and May 29, 2013 using through the promotional web offer.
With the additional two nonstop routes, Alaska Airlines expects to have 160 flights per week taking off from the San Diego airport.
The best current deal Alaska Airlines is offering is a 25,000 welcome bonus through Alaska Airlines® Visa Signature® Credit Card by Bank of America which also includes a coach companion fare starting at $110.
Although this is not major mile maker, if you plan on visiting Kauai or making a trip from San Diego to Boston, this is a great way to earn some more miles.[Disclaimer: We do not earn commission on any of these links]
