US budget-friendly carrier Southwest Airlines Co has announced that it will add another daily flight to Hawaii from January 2020.
Southwest started flying to Hawaii from California in March, just days after a fatal crash involving Boeing Co's 737 MAX jet led to the global grounding of the plane, which the company was planning to use for its Hawaii routes.
The new flights between Sacramento and Honolulu will intensify competition with Hawaiian Airlines.
