Hawaii to Receive New Inter-Island Air Carrier

The Hawaii travel market will receive new inter-island service on November 19. Mokulele Airlines announced Wednesday that it will offer flights from Honolulu to Kona and Lihu'e, after reaching a service agreement with Republic Airways. Republic subsidiary Shuttle America will operate four Embraer 170 jets, which feature 64 coach seats and six in first-class, for Mokulele.

Hawaii governor Linda Lingle, as well as Senator Daniel Inouye and Honolulu mayor Mufi Hannemann all lauded the flight service as a much needed choice for air travel within Hawaii as well as a boost to the state's economy, as it will provide new job opportunities.
