Southwest Airlines is saying "Aloha" to a new opportunity: flying to the Hawaiian Islands.

Southwest plans to use its new Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft, which it added earlier this month, to fly between the mainland and Hawaii.

United States low-priced giant Southwest Airlines will begin sales for Hawaii flights in 2018, and will serve the popular leisure destination from California.

However, Southwest's executive vice president and chief revenue officer, Andrew Watterson, told the Los Angeles Times that the FAA's approval for long-term service to Hawaii could take one to two years.

As for ticket prices, Watterson said, Southwest officials have looked at how much other carriers charge for flights to Hawaii and believe the carrier can charge less.

The Company's aircraft and available seat miles plans for 2018 are unchanged with today's announcement. Southwest is now operating nine MAX 8s and expects to have 14 in service by the end of the year.
