Southwest Airlines, which has just been allowed to fly Wednesday to the islands, has begun promoting Hawaii service from California on its website.

Advertisements indicate that specific routes are not yet available for purchase but that the company intends to offer non-stop service to Hawaii from Oakland, San Diego, San Jose and Sacramento.

Southwest indicates that passengers from California will be able to travel to Honolulu, Kahului, Kona and Lihue. The carrier has also announced its intention to provide an inter-island service.

The Dallas-based airline received Wednesday approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to begin flying to Hawaii. Southwest officials on Wednesday announced that they would release their calendar in the "coming days".

Southwest President and CEO Gary Kelly said in January that the carrier could start flying a month after certification and first sales.

According to airline analysts, the airline should start service with low introductory rates, which other carriers could match.
