Hawaiian Airlines interisland subsidiary to begin operations soon

by amit.uniyal 31. January 2014 08:35

Hawaiian Airlines, which launched its subsidiary Ohana by Hawaiian, to exclusively operate interisland flights has said that it expects that the new subsidiary will begin flight operations within a few weeks. This information was revealed by Mark Dunkerley, President and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines, while he was talking to mediapersons recently.

Dunkerley said that the fledgling turboprop subsidiary Ohana by Hawaiian, which has been launched by Hawaiian Airlines, could begin its flights operations between Honolulu and two of smallest islands in the State of Hawaii. He said that the service could begin as soon as a few weeks from now.

According to Dunkerley, the certification process of the airline is into the final stages which will be given by the Federal Aviation Administration. He said that the airline’s crew is currently engaged and working hard towards proving to the Federal Aviation Administration that the flights can be efficiently operated between the islands to their best satisfaction. He said that the airline’s crew ability to fly is one of the last steps in the certification process.

Hawaiian Airlines said that its subsidiary Ohana by Hawaiian has taken the delivery of its first ATR-42 aircraft in January this year. Hawaiian Airlines had earlier planned to launch its turboprop subsidiary Ohana by Hawaiian in summer 2013. However, the process of certification was delayed. The airline is now confident that the service may finally happen in a few weeks time and not several months. Upon approval that interisland subsidiary will be operating from Honolulu International Airport to Lanai Airport and Molokai Airport.
