“People move to Phoenix to enjoy our quality of life. Air service is an important part of that equation – our residents like to know they can travel efficiently to popular destinations, whether it is for business or vacation,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “As COVID restrictions ease, and travelers decide to get away, it is exciting to know these new Phoenix to Hawaii flights on Southwest will give them more convenient options.”
