Flight of your own
Island Air is now offering private charter flights, with the slogan: "Forget first class. This is a class all its own."
The new charter option allows travelers to customize a flight, with departures at any time, on any day, from any airport in Hawaii and travel to any destination that Island Air serves. Travelers can also customize in-flight amenities, which include arranging for anything from pizza and beer to lobster and champagne. Sky's the limit for busy executives or bridal and reunion parties. The flights can accommodate up to 37 passengers per flight in all-leather seats.
Even if you're traveling the old-fashioned way, Island Air continues to offer 88 daily flights to Honolulu, the islands of Molokai, Lanai, Maui (Kahului and Kapalua), Kauai (Lihue), and the Big Island (Kona and Hilo).
