  1. WHY don’t any of the other airlines besides Hawaiian; i.e., Mokulele, Isld Air, come to Hilo for inter-isld flights? This is so very frustrating that we have NO choice on the east side but to get ripped off by Hawaiian, or drive all the way to Kona or Waimea. I cannot believe there would not be enough rideship to make it worthwhile.

    Does anyone have an answer?? I have asked Mokulele many, many times and their response– no plans but can’t tell me why.


    1. Hi Susie.

      Mokulele has a limit as being 50 miles from the nearest land which may be an issue with flights. Not sure. That is the reason they don’t fly to Kauai.
