Mayor Victorino comments on termination of ‘Ohana by Hawaiian air service to Lana‘i and Moloka‘i

Maui County Mayor Michael Victorino released the following statement today after learning of Hawaiian Airlines’ decision not to reinstate ‘Ohana by Hawaiian passenger and cargo services for Molokai and Lanai:

“First, I’d like to thank Hawaiian Airlines for its years of service to Molokai and Lanai. Sadly, pandemic-related financial hardship and difficulty in hiring essential personnel led to this difficult decision. Hawaiian Airlines has been a good partner for the neighbor islands, and I’d like to believe the airline can return someday in the future. 

Fortunately, Mokulele Airlines will continue to serve both islands; Lanai can also rely on Expeditions Ferry service. Representative Lynn DeCoite and I have discussed our shared concerns about the loss of medical transport to, and from, Honolulu for patients who require special seating or the use of boarding ramps for mobility reasons. We understand that Mokulele has plans to expand to larger aircraft to compensate for the loss of lift, and we appreciate their concern for the people of Lanai and Molokai. We will continue to research alternatives for those with special travel needs.”
