´Ohana by Hawaiian said it will be expanding its route network for the summer to include Maui, connecting more islands and offering kama´Äina (residents) and visitors more options and more flexibility for neighbor island travel.
Beginning this July, Hawai´i´s newest turboprop operation will offer daily flights between Kahului, Maui (OGG) and Moloka´i (MKK); Kahului and Kona, Hawai´i Island (KOA); and Kahului and Hilo (ITO). Also announced is an additional flight between Honolulu and Moloka´i which will also operate for the summer period, increasing its existing service from thrice daily to four times daily between the two islands.
´Ohana by Hawaiian operates its flights using 48-seat ATR-42 aircraft with a special livery designed by Hilo-based artist Sig Zane and his son KÅ«ha´o, who both used Hawaiian Airlines´ interisland route map as inspiration for the design, weaving three kapa patterns: piko (navel), representing ancestry and progeny; manu (bird), representing both a bird in flight and the prow of a canoe, the traditional form of migration; and kalo (taro), representing family.
Hawaiian has led all US carriers in on-time performance for each of the past ten years (2004-2013) as reported by the US Department of Transportation. Hawaiian Airlines, Inc. is a subsidiary of Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: HA). Additional information is available at HawaiianAirlines.com.
