Hawaiian Airlines’ turboprop division, Ohana by Hawaiian,
has announced plans to boost service between Honolulu International Airport and
the island of Lanai, adding another daily, nonstop flight later this spring.
The interisland carrier will offer five nonstop Honolulu-Lanai
flights beginning May 16.
“We are pleased to optimize our service by providing our
residents and visitors more flexibility when flying between Honolulu and Lanai,”
Hadden Watt, Ohana by Hawaiian’s managing director, said in a statement.
Ohana announced its plans for increased service to Lanai just
a little over a week after Hawaii interisland competitor Island Air said it would
end service to Lanai at the end of March.
Ohana by Hawaiian operates a fleet of three 48-seat ATR-42 turboprop
aircraft, serving the islands of Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui and the Big Island
