People went wild and swooped up some pretty cheap flights from the Bay to Honolulu when Southwest announced a huge sale to celebrate its inaugural flights from California to Hawaii.

If you’re one of those who missed out, there’s still a chance for you to get away on that island vacation you’re still daydreaming about. 

Hawaiian Airlines has dropped prices to $98 for some round-trip flights as Southwest Airlines enters the Hawaii market.

At last check, tickets from Oakland to Honolulu for the last week in April started at a little less than $300 round trip. 

The airline listed low airfares for most days in May as well, matching Southwest’s lowest price.

The Dallas-based carrier is beginning daily flights between the islands in late April.

It’s making its trans-Pacific debut Sunday with a flight from Oakland, California, to Honolulu.

It’s launching flights between Oakland and Maui on April 7.

It aims to serve four airports in Hawaii from Oakland, San Jose, Sacramento and San Diego.
