Mokulele Will Honor Its Flights Bought On Go!
Mokulele Airlines is honoring its flights that were purchased on Go!, the interisland carrier that yesterday announced it was shutting down on April 1.
Mokulele also said today in a press release that passengers who purchased Go! flights on Mokulele’s website for travel to Kaua‘i and Hilo should contact Mokulele for refunds, the release said.
Mokulele Airlines has had a code share agreement with go! since November 2011 when TransPac Aviation purchased the turbo prop division from Arizona-based Mesa Air Group, which operated Go!.
“There is still some misconception on the relationships with Go! and Mokulele,” said Dave Berry, executive vice-president COO of Mokulele, in an email to bigislandnow.com.
“Mokulele Airlines is not part of Go! and has not been since November 2011,” Berry said
“We had a code share agreement where by they could sell tickets on their site for travel on us and we could sell tickets on our site for traveling on Go!,” he said. “That agreement is over and we have both ceased to sell each other tickets.
“We are honoring each other’s ticket purchases through April 1st,” Berry said, adding that for travel after April 1 each passenger is being contacted for rescheduling on another airline or given a refund.
Mokulele has differentiated itself from go! over the past two years by creating a new brand image that includes a new logo and color scheme, and by establishing its own counters at the airports it serves, the press release said.
Mokulele now offers more than 115 flights a day connecting O‘ahu, Moloka‘i, Lana‘i, Maui and the Big Island on its fleet of nine-passenger, turbine-powered Cessna Grand Caravans, and has added nine new Cessna Grand Caravans to its fleet in the last 12 months due to increasing demand for low-cost, interisland travel, the release said.
Mokulele Airlines has operated in Hawai‘i since 1994.
