This Hawaiian Carrier is Shutting Things Down at The End of The Month

Zipping back and forth between the islands over in Hawaii just got a little more complicated, as one of the main interisland carriers is getting ready to drop out of the competition. It’s been a rough ride for Mesa Air Group and its subsidiary known as go!, and now it looks like it will shut down and send the planes and people back to the mainland as of April 1.

We’ve heard less than awesome things about the carrier, and it appears that go! never really caught on with the locals after its entrance into the market and resulting fare wars drove Aloha Airlines' out of business back in 2008.

The final flights will do their thing on March 31, but if you have tickets for flights after that you’re going to need to file to get your money back. Refunds are available on the web, and you will need to fill out a form and wait around three weeks for things to be processed. If your flight is on or before June 30th, go! may transfer your ticket over to Hawaiian Airlines.

As for the future of interisland airfare, Hawaiian Airlines will certainly be leading the way for the immediate future. Sure, Island Air and Mokulele Airlines still fly as well, but no one can compare to the fleet and frequency of Hawaiian Airlines. We just hope this doesn’t send interisland airfare too high into the sky.
