About Mokulele Airlines - (MW) Flights
Aloha! and welcome to Mokulele Airlines, an American commuter airline which is based in the city of Kona, in the largest island of Hawaii. This airline operates as a scheduled inter-island airline and also as a charter-flight service, traversing between the islands within the state of Hawaii and also catering to a few international destinations as well. Mokuele Airlines was founded in the year 1994 as ‘Mokulele Flight service’ by its founder- Rebecca “Kawehi” Inaba. She was the first native-Hawaiian born woman to start an airline in Hawaii. Rebecca’s father was a pilot for Aloha Airlines, the reason why she always held a love for aviation. Starting Mokulele Flight Service was more of a joint venture with her partner- Jules Dudoit. Jules got the flying certificate for Mokulele, which started offering circle-island tours for passengers for them to witness the inexplicable beauty of the Hawaii National Park and of the island of Maui. In the year 2005, Mokulele Airlines was acquired by Boyer Industries LLC. By William “Boyer” Boyer Jr. who went on to become the airline’s CEO. When William had acquired Mokuele, it only had a fleet consisting of 3 Piper Navajo Chieftain Aircrafts which are charter airplanes. These charter planes would only cater to Hawaiian sight-seeing, taking passengers over Hawaiian Volcanoes National Park and sights around the beautiful island of Maui.
