Mokulele Airlines has announced that it is expanding its service between Kamuela-Waimea on the Big Island and Kahului, Maui.
The company says its adding a third daily roundtrip flight to meet growing demand.
Mokulele will now offer 42 weekly flights between the two destinations.
With the new flights, passengers can depart from Kahului at 8:35 am and arrive in Kamuela at 9:20 am.
Maui-bound passengers can depart Kamuela at 9:40 am and arrive in Kahului at 10:25 am.
Fares start at $69 each way, taxes included, some restrictions apply and seats may be limited.
Mokulele began offering service form Kamuela in September 2013 after being awarded the Essential Air Service (EAS) contract from the Hawaii Department of Transportation.
EAS is a government program designed to help ensure that smaller communities have access to commercial air service.
“Since winning the award, we’ve focused on delivering low fare, high-quality flights to the community by working directly with those who would use our service, and our boardings have reflected that,” Mokulele’s President and CEO Ron Hansen said.
