Just the other day we were looking at the snazzy look of the latest member of the Hawaiian Airlines family, and now it looks like ‘Ohana by Hawaiian is ready to take to the skies.
If you need a refresher ‘Ohana by Hawaiian is the new subsidiary carrier from Hawaiian Airlines, as they plan to connect some smaller airports and locations in and around the islands with a little bit of propeller power.
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.
It’s been a little bit of time since we heard about Hawaiian Airlines and their plans to expand inter-island service with a new carrier of their own. They’re eager to get in on the smaller markets that aren’t as well served within the islands, so they’re ordering some new planes—smaller turboprops—and they’re almost ready to go.
The new subsidiary of Hawaiian Airlines will be known as ’Ohana, and they’re looking to get things up in the air as soon as this summer. Technically they’re contracting out the flying fun, as Empire Airlines will be the ones behind the controls. Flights over to spots on both Lanai and Molokai will be some of the first destinations, as a pair of ATR42 turboprop aircraft will handle the quick flights between the different islands and destinations.
