Once we release our 2nd Hawaiian Island package you will be able to start your island hopping experiences. The four airports on Kauai can be starting places or destinations from the Maui County islands with four new island opening up with 7 airports. A slight complication is that you will be overflying Oahu, our crown jewel in this Hawaiian Scenery package. I don't know exactly how this is going to look for you, but, for now, that is how this is unfolding.
Hopefully, our 3rd release - the Big Island of Hawaii - will follow close behind the Maui County release and will be able to extend your flight time and destinations yet again. The Big Island has 6 airports and two helipads.
The commercial commuter flights are constantly changing both in the number of flights, the actual aircraft types and the airports on the islands. This Covid-19 pandemic has seriously affected the tourist trade and especially when you will be quarantined for 14 days upon arrival. Most folks can't afford to fly to Hawaii and stay two weeks and fly back home and not have a job to produce some income.
This sudden drop in tourists and the nearly empty flights have created some unlikely mergers and acquisitions in the smaller island hopping businesses. The competitors are being forced to join together to cut their losses and try to keep their airplanes in the air and away from the bankruptcy lawyers.
Some of the larger airports have direct flights originating on the U.S. mainland with destinations bypassing Honolulu, PHNL. So in addition to island hopping you can load up one of our larger airliners and fly direct to Maui or Lihue from Denver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, or any of the military bases in the western U. S.
