KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii, March 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Kona-based Mokulele Airlines today announced service between the islands of Lana'i and Maui, starting on April 15, 2012. Listening to their customers' needs, the airline provider is "happy to follow through with providing affordable and needed flights," said Ron Hansen, Chief Executive Officer of Mokulele Airlines. The airline, recently under new ownership, will provide one daily direct flight from Lana'i to Maui and two daily direct trips from Maui to Lana'i. The new flights have allowed for an additional morning flight from Lana'i (with a brief stop on Moloka'i) to Honolulu.

Senator J. Kalani English, chairman of the Hawai'i State Senate Committee on Transportation and Senator for Hana, East and Upcountry Maui, Moloka'i, Lana'i and Kaho'olawe said, "I am elated that people on Lana'i will have over more opportunities to travel to visit their 'ohana on other islands. I appreciate Mokulele Airlines' willingness to listen to their customers and provide fair and affordable travel options, especially in my district which is remote in nature - air travel is a lifeline."

Hansen added, "We are happy to provide the only nonstop scheduled flights between Lana'i and the Valley Isle. Lana'i travelers can now fly to Maui to shop, visit their doctor, or spend the weekend with 'ohana. I'm hopeful that kama'aina will continue to make Mokulele their first choice for inter-island travel."

Mokulele's spring season start will offer daily flights between Lana'i City (LNY) and Kahului, Maui (OGG) with fares as low as $67.79 each way (taxes and fees included, seats may be limited, additional rules below). The flights are now available online at www.mokuleleairlines.com and will be available in the next few days to local travel agents and online websites.
