Airline launches service to Valley Isle

Virgin America said it has begun flying from San Francisco to Kahului, Maui with connecting flights from most Virgin America markets.

As the only California-based airline, Virgin America will offer Bay Area travelers a fresh and upscale new travel option to Maui.

The airline launched service to Honolulu, Hawaii last month.

Hawaii continues to be the number one tourism destination from the West Coast, with over 3.3 million visitors in 20141. Virgin America´s service is uniquely tailored to the modern traveler and to the longer-haul Hawaii flight experience.

With new aircraft that offer three custom-designed classes of service, touch-screen personal entertainment and an award-winning on-demand food and cocktail menu on every flight — travelers departing from the stylish and convenient new Terminal Two at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) can kick-off their Hawaii vacation as soon as they step onboard. Virgin America has been named the “Best Domestic Airline” in both Conde Nast Traveler´s Readers´ Choice Awards and in Travel + Leisure´s World´s Best Awards for the past eight consecutive years.

Virgin America launched in 2007.
