· 'Ohana by Hawaiian:
We’ve mentioned that Hawaiian Airlines had their eyes on a smaller turboprop subsidiary, and now it’s time for the ‘Ohana to start flying between the islands. The first destination to score service is Moloka‘i, as nonstop flights are now an option to and from Honolulu. Just a few more days and destination number two becomes an option. That’s when twice daily service between Honolulu and Lāna’i becomes an option on March 18.
With plenty of room for planes and people now that United moved out of town, the airport over in Cleveland is looking for some new tenants. Delta has already agreed to move on in, as they’re doing the nonstop thing between Cleveland and Indianapolis as well as Raleigh-Durham. The new nonstops take to the skies on June 5, and it will be those comfy-cozy regional jets doing all of the flying. So be sure to go ahead and stretch those legs at the gate before boarding.

Last but not least this week is Icelandair, as the carrier has just initiated some nonstop flights between two chilly cities. Nonstop flights are now an option between Edmonton—in Canada—and Reykjavik—in Iceland. Unfortunately there are no wide-bodied airliners here, as it will just be Boeing 757s as the route crosses the Atlantic four times weekly. This is destination number four for the carrier up in Canada, and they don’t face any true competition on this route. That means expect to pay a premium if you’re looking to celebrate spring break in Iceland.
