Mokulele Airlines hosted a grand opening celebration last week at its newest service location, Kalaeloa Airport on west Oahu, marking the successful conclusion of a year of preparations.
Kalaeloa is located at the former Barber’s Point Naval Air Base John Rogers Field. The grand opening and inaugural flight took place July 1, 15 years to the day that the former base was closed and turned over to the State of Hawaii.
July 1 marked the beginning of Mokulele’s daily non-stop service to Kahului, Maui from Kalaeloa, with six scheduled daily flights, three each way.
Kalaeloa is the ninth airport Mokulele serves. Mokulele is offering a special introductory web fare of $99 roundtrip including taxes and fees for the new Kalaeloa-Kahului route for reservations booked through July 31 for travel through Aug. 30.
