Hawaiian regional carrier Mokulele Airlines is expanding its inter-island service in the island state by adding four new routes on October 20.
Mokulele Airlines will operate new routes between Kalaeloa on Oahu and Molokai; Kalaeloa and Kapalua on Maui; Kapalua and Molokai; and Kapalua and Hana on Maui.
On July 1, Mokulele began service from Kalaeloa Airport, the former Barber’s Point Naval Air Base John Rogers Field, becoming the first airline to operate commercial services to and from the west Oahu airport.
“We have been very gratified by the response to our service between Kalaeloa and Kahului and as a result, we’re expanding our service to offer passengers traveling out of west Oahu even more options,” says Ron Hansen, CEO of Mokulele Airlines. “We’re also very pleased to offer our Kapalua, Molokai and Hana passengers additional choices for their travel needs.”
Mokulele Airlines is offering introductory one-way fares for the four new routes, beginning at $44 including taxes and fees. The introductory fares are available for travel through November 30, 2014.
Mokulele Airlines, which has been operating in Hawaii since 1994, was purchased by TransPac Aviation, Inc. in 2011 with the goal of providing high-quality, low-cost, inter-island air service.
Headquartered in Kailua-Kona, Mokulele Airlines now offers more than 120 flights a day connecting Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui and the Big Island of Hawaii with a fleet of nine-passenger, turboprop Cessna 208EX Grand Caravan transport aircraft.
The regional airline has 11 Cessna 208EX Grand Caravans in service or on order. It recently retired four Cessna 208Bs it formerly operated and the aircraft are now stored in the mainland U.S., awaiting sale.
