Island Air recently announced that it will discontinue service to Lanai. The last flights to and from Lanai will take place on March 31.
 
“It was a difficult decision," said Les Murashige, CEO of Island Air, in a written release. "However, as Island Air continues to restructure, we are taking a hard look at all of the destinations we serve and where our resources are best deployed."

All of the 11 Lanai-based Island Air staff will be offered the opportunity to transfer elsewhere within the company.

“We appreciate and thank all of our employees who have provided impeccable service and our customers who have supported Island Air over the years,” said Murashige.
