Hawaiian Airlines' Georgeous Ohana Planes to Fly Hawaii's Skies Soon
February 5, 2014 at 7:49 AM
A while ago we mentioned that Hawaiian Airlines was planning on launching a few new routes, and that they would be doing so thanks to some new propeller power. They’re still going with the new carrier name of ’Ohana, and it looks like things are set to hit the skies sooner than later.
The plan for the subsidiary airline is to serve some of the islands smaller airports, as Hawaiian Airlines is probably a little miffed that there are some options that their larger Boeing 717 interisland planes are missing out on.
Just a couple weeks ago the carrier received its first ATR-42 turboprop aircraft, so they’re definitely getting ready to go. The carrier is just waiting on Uncle Sam, as the airline is going through its final stages of certification and what not from the Federal Aviation Administration.
When approved it sounds like the very first options will link Honolulu and Lanai Airport, as well as between Honolulu and Molokai Airport. So if you’re looking for some interisland airfare—just stay tuned—as ‘Ohana will be taking off before you know it.
