Back by Popular Demand! Southwest Airlines Launches the Beloved Sunset on the Beach Events


Southwest Airlines is continuing the yearlong celebration of five years of Hawaii service by announcing a collaboration with Waikiki Improvement Association and the City and County of Honolulu as Presenting Sponsor of a revitalized Sunset on the Beach movie screening series. Premiering June 22, 2024, Hawaii locals, and visitors to the Aloha State, can join Southwest® each month on Queen’s Beach in Waikiki for these free, family-friendly events with live music, games, and food at sunset, followed by a movie night under the stars.


We're committed to building relationships with Hawaii locals—beginning even before we began service to the islands—and listening to learn what is important to them. It fills our Heart with pride to bring back this beloved Sunset on the Beach program to continue creating memories with our Customers and Employees as we celebrate five years of service to Hawaii.

HI 5 Hawaii

Since our first service to Hawaii in 2019, we’re grateful to have grown to serve five airports in Aloha State, and to link the Hawaiian Islands with the mainland through nonstop service in eight gateway airports: Long Beach, Calif.; Oakland, Calif.; Sacramento, San Jose, Calif.; Los Angeles (LAX); San Diego; Las Vegas; and Phoenix. Today, Southwest offers up to 90 flights a day touching Hawaii, and more than 60 flights of interisland service this summer. In addition, Southwest has donated more than $3.8 million in cash and in-kind contributions to Hawaii-based nonprofits throughout its years of service in Hawaii. As part of this programming, we’re committed to donating $7,500 to AccesSurf, Boys and Girls Club Hawaii and of Maui, and Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement, and invites Customers to donate alongside us. We look to continuing to celebrate with Heart in the community all year long with new programming added throughout the year.
