Southwest Airlines has plans to start offering flights to Hawaii.

The airline has not said exactly when its service to the vacation destination will begin, but tickets are to go on sale starting next year and that could drop fares to Hawaii among other airlines.

Southwest typically drives down airfares on routes it flies in what’s become to be known as the ‘Southwest effect’.
