FAQs for booking flights to Honolulu
What airports do you use when flying from San Diego to Honolulu?
If you fly from sunny San Diego to Honolulu, you’ll enter San Diego International Airport and exit Daniel K. Inouye International Airport on Oahu.
When is the best time to fly from San Diego to Honolulu?
With both San Diego and Honolulu having comfortably warm temperatures year round, choosing when to book is almost entirely up to personal preference. Trust us, there won’t be a bad time to come to Honolulu. As a general rule of thumb, traveling to Oahu in the summer or winter season can be a bit pricier, while shoulder seasons like spring and fall are better for the budget-minded flyer. If you’re thinking of visiting Oahu’s neighbor islands, it’s good to keep in mind any seasonal events or spectacles you’d like to see. Maui’s northern coastlines—for example—catches gnarly
surf during the winter months, and if you’re lucky, you could even see the fabled big wave surf spot Peahi (popularly known as Jaws) produce waves as high as 50 feet.

How long is the flight from San Diego to Honolulu?
Not long! Departing from the West Coast means you’ll be up in the air for around six hours—just enough time to catch some sleep or read a book. If you can’t sleep on planes, don’t fret! Hawaiian Airlines has awesome in-flight entertainment options, from blockbuster movies to insightful magazine features—found in the airlines’ inflight publication Hana Hou!—that dive deep into Hawaii’s culture and communities.
