Island Air recently announced it plans to offer inter-island air service to Hawaii Island, commonly referred to as "The Big Island," with five daily round-trip flights between Honolulu and Kona, starting June 14, subject to government approval.
The airline’s expansion of service to Kona will offer increased seat availability and more inter-island travel flight options for local residents and visitors, as well as create job opportunities in West Hawaii.
Island Air is celebrating its new service to Kona by offering an introductory fare sale from April 14-20.
The special introductory fare for a one-way flight between Honolulu and Kona will start from $69 for travel between June 14 and September 30. Reservations can be made online at www.islandair.com or by calling 800- 652-6541.
In addition to providing increased seat capacity, Island Air’s Kona service is expected to create roughly 25 airport-related jobs in West Hawaii.
Island Air’s check-in ticket counter will be located in Terminal 1 and arrivals/departures will be out of Gate 5 at Kona International Airport.
