Southwest Airlines News

The Hawaii Department of Transportation said that Southwest Airlines is working with the Federal Aviation Administration to receive their “Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards” otherwise known as “ETOPS”.
Getting ETOPS clearance is needed before Southwest can fly across the Pacific from the mainland to Hawaii.

While there has been no confirmation on the number of routes, or when they will come online, it’s great news for Hawaii that Southwest is taking this action step in order to move forward. In a statement by

Hawaiian Airlines Plans For More Direct Flights To Neighbor Islands

Last Friday Hawaiian Airlines got their first A321 planes delivered, this is the first of 18 planes that they ordered. The use of these planes is going to be to expand their non-stop flights from the mainland to the neighbor islands.   Daily non-stop service will begin Jan. 18 between Portland and Kahului, and flights between Oakland and Lihue, Kauai will begin April 11.  The airline said additional routes will be announced as it grows the A321neo fleet through 2020.

On the heals of the announcement of receivership of their new plan Hawaiian Airlines announced they are hiring 70 contract workers for the customer and ramp services in Maui.

Kauai Real Estate Year To Date Statistics

With October over we have the first 10 months of real estate data to compare to this same time last year. The graph below will give you the statistics for the entire island and will break it down by three regions; South Shore, Lihue/Puhi and Princeville/Hanalei

I see two figures that are skewed. The first being land in Lihue and this is due to a lot of new inventory that Grove Farm released for their new subdivision “Puakea Phase 1”. These vacant lots are geared towards residential homeowners and cannot be vacation rented.
The condominium market on the South Shore shows condo sales up over 50% but prices down by -3.51% and this is due to the leasehold sales which are lower in price. The Pili Mai Fee Simple sales have been very strong with 30 condos being sold since January 1 of this year. On the flip side of that Kiahuna Plantation Leasehold sales have been strong as well with 29 sold YTD compared to 13 this same time last year.

See the graph below and call me if you have any questions:
