When is the Best Time to Fly from Kona to Seattle?
If you don’t mind waiting, September and October are great options for those looking to save a little on their KOA to SEA flights while also being treated to absolutely pleasant—and not too cold—weather. If you’re you’re booking your Kona to Seattle flights in the winter, make sure to pack your cold-weather clothing and a rain jacket—or buy some if you don’t have any—as it can get chilly in Seattle from November to January.
What Airports Do You Fly from KOA to SEA?
Since most major airlines do not offer nonstop flights from Kona to Seattle, visitors looking to book a flight to WA will be departing from the Kona International Airport (KOA) before touching back down at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) for a brief layover. Then it’s a straight shot to the Seattle Tacoma International Airport (SEA) to finish off your KOA to SEA journey. For those with roundtrip tickets, flight schedules will have you doing that order of
airports in reverse, from SEA to HNL then KOA. You may also have a brief layover at the Kahului International Airport (OGG) in Maui instead of an HNL layover.
How Long is the Flight from Kona to Seattle?
With layovers included, the total travel time of your Kona to Seattle flight can be anywhere between eight and ten hours, depending on the length and location of your layover. Since the layover locations are close to home—either at HNL or OGG—this is a great opportunity for travelers to grab a snack or bite to eat before boarding your flight to Seattle.
