This is a great little airline. Hassle free and staff helpful and friendly. The single engine plane holds 9 people and you are told where to sit according to your weight. You really get the feel of flying. Sometimes a little bumpy but you get a wonderful view of the beautiful scenery. Super easy check-in and no lines. The way...

When booking a flight I rarely pay attention to the type of aircraft and neither had our friends, apparently. All four of us were surprised that this connecting flight turned out to be in a 9 seater Cessna. And what a wonderful surprise it was, too. Not only was the pilot fun and friendly, the route took us over the...

The airport is close to my house, the staff at both airports is very friendly. And it's fast.. The pilots are also very friendly, they even ask you what you like to see, go straight or see the cliffs of Molokai and explain things to the passengers. The luggage is fast, have our own gate and you can always see...

Took tour to see volcano. First fly over was Haleakala crater on Maui, spectacular view!! Went on over to big island and the volcano. Amazing!! Looked right down and saw Lava!!! The flow into the ocean was not impressive at this time, but you could see the steam rising from the water. Flew over Hill, that was beautiful. Pilot was...

Was hoping we could take the family for under $500 to Big Island for a church retreat where i was teaching a class. It costs the 5 of us $949 for the 40 min flight....i believe all the other airlines would have charged similar fares. Friendly staff though VERY strict about pulling everything out of my carry-on which weighed 18...

I had to best flying experience on Mokulele Airlines. I flew out of Kona to Maul for a week. Everything was so fast and efficient. The check in was fast and courteous. Everyone was friendly. The flight was smooth and comfortable. Once we landed my bags were right there at the plane. No waiting for my baggage like other airlines....

I've flown Mokulele a few times but this is the first time I've flown with a connecting leg. We were going from HNL to OGG and we saw that we connected in Molokai. Of course no one ever wants a connecting flight anywhere but this might be the carrier that changes that! The flight from HNL to Molokai is about...

This was a newly added return scenic flight across the upper ends of both islands . Awesome experience with spectacular scenery all the way . So glad we did it and amazed how close we got to the cliff faces totally breath taking . Informative commentary all the way .

We took the volcanos air tour with Mokulele Airlines out of the Kapalua Airport (JHM), and I can quite honestly say that it was the "most spectacular" air tour that we've ever experienced! The beauty and scenery of this air tour absolutely blew my mind and took my breath away! We took literally hundreds of photos between my husband &...

We hopped from Kahului to Kona on Mokulele and the first mishap was finding the check-in counter at the airport (we did not know we had to find the commuter's terminal first) but once we got there the adventure began. We weighted the bags (and ourselves!) and then were told to simply wait for someone to call our names and...
