Oh I wish traveling on every airline was as fantastic as Mokulele Airlines. I've used this service a handful of times and loved each experience. No hassles checking, flights are affordable and reasonably comfortable, and the pilots seem to take the most scenic routes possible....More

Experience of a lifetime! 2 hour tour of Kīlauea eruption by fixed wing aircraft. Wonderful pilots, reasonable price at $399. No need to transfer to a helicopter. Best thing we’ve done on our family vacation.

We flew Maui to Kona. Arrived at the comuter terminal early and they gave us an earlier flight! Because it flies lower, a great sightseeing trip aldo.

This is such a fun experience. Low key and local. You get a better view of the Islands than on the bigger airlines.You don't have to deal with long lines and it's just like flying used to be back in the day.

Well-organized, convenient and very quick service. Much more efficient and comfortable than big airlines. Boarded at Waimea airport where Rona was more than patient and helpful. Would fly with them again if in Hawaii.

I assume you are flying out of Kona, so yes. We have a lot just 30-40 yds down from the terminal. There is no fee for overnight parking. Thanks for flying with us.
