Makani Kai Air Expands Molokai Service
Makani Kai News Release
Makani Kai Air is now offering three more daily round trip flights between Honolulu and Molokai on Sundays and four more round trips on Fridays.
“We’re expanding the number of flights on those days in response to the number of passengers who were finding it difficult to get seats on those days,” said Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air. “Since we began our service to topside Molokai last June we have been extremely happy with the number of Molokai residents who now call us their airline.”
Located at 130 Iolana Place along Lagoon Drive, Makani Kai Air is on the other side of the airport, away from the terminals and congestion. Parking is close by, there are no TSA lines and the airline generally recommends people arrive just 15 minutes prior to departure.
Makani Kai Air Charters, an FAA 135 scheduled air carrier, was established by Schuman Aviation Company, Ltd., in 2009. The company’s website offers one way tickets between Molokai and Honolulu and Honolulu and Molokai for $50, every seat, every day.
The most interesting part of the article is the comment about the TSA – no lines and arrive 15 minutes prior to departure.
