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.
