Alaska Airlines will expand its flights from Oakland and San Jose, Calif., to Lihue, on Kauai, and Kona, on the Big Island, to daily, nonstop service beginning March 12.

Previously, the Seattle-based carrier offered service three times a week from San Jose to Lihue and Oakland to Kona while flying four times weekly from San Jose to Kona and Oakland to Lihue.

“We are really excited to now offer daily service from San Jose and Oakland to three Hawaiian islands,” Joe Sprague, Alaska's vice president of marketing, said in a statement. The airline also offers daily service to Maui. “Going to seven flights a week from both San Jose and Oakland to Kauai and Kona,,along with our existing daily service from both cities to Maui, makes it more convenient than ever for Bay Area travelers flying to the Hawaiian islands.”
