It’s a go. Southwest Airlines is cleared to start flights to Hawaii.  On Wednesday, the FAA approved Southwest to begin flying over the Pacific from California. Flights will depart from Oakland, San Jose, San Francisco, and San Diego.  The airline also intends to offer service between the islands of Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island.  In a statement, Southwest said, “We’ll publicly announce our timing for selling tickets and inaugurating flights to the Hawaiian Islands in the coming days.”
