We’re getting closer! The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that Southwest finishes Hawaii ETOPS test flights, paving the way to completion of the certification process.
Well, Hawaii didn’t get any Southwest LUV yesterday, but we did learn more about their future plans. Specifically, Southwest mulls Hawaii – Las Vegas service, which I think is an EXCELLENT idea!
Rumor has it that there’s going to be a Southwest Valentine’s surprise for Hawaii. And I’m sure you all can guess what I’m alluding to here.
As Southwest Airlines made its inaugural validation flight, the Hawaii Department of Transportation made another important announcement; the Southwest Air gare at HNL are complete!
Now that the Partial Government Shutdown is over, Southwest can resume its ETOPS certification. And, so, Southwest begins Hawaii validation flights today!
