Hawaiian Airlines is celebrating the launch of Ohana by Hawaiian, a new interisland turboprop service from Honolulu to Molokai and Lanai by offering $59 one-way fares. Three daily flights to Molokai begin March 11 and twice daily service to Lanai begins March 18. Tickets must be booked by February 17 for travel through April 17 to both destinations.
“As Hawaii’s first airline, this new operation anchors us to our legacy and vision to connect all of our island communities through flight, making it easier for kamaaina and visitors alike to share time together,” said Hadden Watt, managing director of Ohana by Hawaiian. “We look forward to providing travelers the same standards of consistent service and reliability combined with the friendly and authentic Hawaiian hospitality they’ve come to expect of Hawaiian Airlines.”
Ohana by Hawaiian, which will operate out of gates 49 and 50 at Honolulu International Airport, has created more than 100 new Hawaii-based jobs, including pilots, flight attendants, ground-handling and customer service positions. While the new service is operated by Idaho-based Empire Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines is handling reservations and sales, allowing the interisland flights to integrate seamlessly into Hawaiian Airlines’ route network.
