Featured Map for 7 February 2019:
Southwest Airlines Honolulu to Dallas


Yesterday, Southwest Airlines completed its first flight from Hawaii, a 3,795-mile ETOPS proving flight from Honolulu to Dallas. This flight exceeded Boeing's published 3,383-mile maximum range for the 737-800, a feat possible due to a light load consisting only of FAA representatives and Southwest employees participating in the certification effort, aided by favorable tailwinds. The aircraft had arrived in Honolulu from Oakland the previous day.

When Southwest adds scheduled service to Hawaii plans are for service between four California airports (Oakland, San Diego, San Josť, and Sacramento) and four Hawaiian airports (Honolulu, Kahului (Maui), Lihue (Kauai), and Kona ("The Big Island")). Dallas isn't in the current plans.

Today's Featured Map shows the route of this week's certification flights plus the four airports on each end of the planned Hawaiian service.
