Scheduled Hawaii Inter-Island Flights

Hawaiian Airlines

Hawaiian Airlines is the largest airline based in Hawaii and one of the 20 largest airlines in the United States. Hawaiian offers flights between all of Hawaii's largest islands and round trip flights between Hawaii and the U.S. mainland, Samoa, Australia, the Philippines, and the island of Tahiti in French Polynesia.

Go! Airlines
This airline owned by the Mesa Air Group of Arizona has been operating inter-island flights in Hawaii since June of 2006. When Go! entered Hawaii's inter-island airline market their main competitors were Hawaiian Airlines and Aloha Airlines, but Aloha went bankrupt and ceased all operations in 2008. SOME INTERESTING NEWS ABOUT GO! AIRLINES: In December of 2008 the former owner of Aloha Airlines licensed the right to use the Aloha Airlines logo and brand name to the parent company of Go Airlines for $6 million, but that licensing agreement was invalidated by a U.S. Bankruptcy judge in March of 2009 on a technicality related to how the licensing agreement sale was handled. To be continued...

Island Air
In addition to flying between Honolulu and the outer islands, Island Air offers flights directly between some of the outer islands without stopping in Honolulu.

Mokulele Airlines
This airline based in Kailua-Kona on Hawaii Island has a fleet of 9-passenger and 70-passenger aircraft. Mokulele offers scheduled flights between six of Hawaii's Islands and circle island tours of Hawaii Island (aka the Big Island).

Pacific Wings
This commuter airline based in Kahului, Maui operates scheduled and charter flights between all of Hawaii's largest islands. Pacific Wings has a small fleet of Cessna aircraft. Pacific Wings was founded in 1974 in Las Vegas as a charter airline called Air Nevada Airlines. In 1998 the company changed its name from Air Nevada to Pacific Wings and began operating in Hawaii. In 2007 they began operating some of their Hawaii flights under the brand name PW Express.
