HONOLULU — Island Air announced it plans to offer interisland air service to Hawaii Island with five daily round-trip flights between Honolulu and Kona, starting June 14, subject to government approval.
The airline’s expansion of service to Kona will offer increased seat availability and more interisland travel flight options for local residents and visitors, as well as create job opportunities in West Hawaii.
“Both the community and our travel industry partners have reached out to us asking for more support for the West Hawaii community,” said Les Murashige, Island Air’s president and CEO, who grew up on Kauai. “As we continue to improve our operations and expand our presence in the community, Island Air is proud to once again serve Hawaii Island and provide service to support Hawaii’s families, local businesses and our visitors so that all may enjoy our Island way.”
Island Air recently resumed service on Kauai with daily round-trip flights between Honolulu and Kauai.
Island Air is celebrating its new service to Kona by offering an introductory fare sale through April 20.
