Alaska Airlines will offer weekly, seasonal service between Anchorage and Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii beginning Nov. 10 this year and ending April 7.

“Our loyal customers have been asking for Kona flights for years, and we’re delighted to expand our Aloha service to give Alaskans convenient, nonstop access to another great Hawaiian island,” Marilyn Romano, Alaska Airlines’ regional vice president, said in a statement.

The carrier currently operates a daily, nonstop flight between Anchorage and Honolulu and will launch seasonal service to Maui’s Kahului Airport from Anchorage beginning Nov. 4 and ending April 14.

Alaska will fly Boeing 737-800 aircraft, featuring 16 first-class seats and 141 in the main cabin, on the new Anchorage-Kona route.
