Hawaiian Airlines is cutting inter-island flights and cargo service, citing low travel demand and quarantine restrictions, the airline announced in a news release.
‘Ohana by Hawaiian offers multiple flights each day from Honolulu to Molokai and Lanai and is operated by third party Empire Airlines. That service will be suspended starting Nov. 1, along with cargo service between the islands.
“While Hawaiian would be able to resume ‘Ohana by Hawaiian service with a significant recovery in inter-island travel, that is unlikely to occur anytime soon,” the release stated.
Hawaii had implemented a 14-day quarantine for travelers to the Aloha State, but recently announced a revision that will allow visitors to provide a negative Covid-19 test within 72-hours of traveling.
