Virgin America announced Tuesday it will expand its service to Hawaii with daily nonstop flights from Los Angeles International Airport to Honolulu, Oahu on May 5, and Kahului, Maui on June 14.

The airline recently launched daily service from San Francisco International Airport to Honolulu and Maui.

The Aloha state is the “most wanted” destination by members of Virgin America’s Elevate loyalty program and Hawaii continues to be the number one tourism destination from the West Coast, according to Virgin America President and CEO David Cush.

“Since we launched our Hawaii service last year, we’ve seen firsthand why it is one of the most popular leisure destinations among West Coast travelers,” Cush said. “The guest response to our new routes has been extremely positive, which is why we are so pleased to announce that we are expanding our nonstop service to the Los Angeles market.”

The LAX-Hawaii flights are on sale now and can be purchased at or 1-877-FLY-VIRGIN.

As of tomorrow, Elevate members can use points to redeem reward flights to Hawaii, with no black-out dates.

The flights will be operated with new Airbus A320 aircraft that Virgin America began taking delivery of last year.
