Welcome aboard, E komo mai!
Mokulele is really taking off, and all of us here at the airline appreciate that it wouldn’t be possible without your support, and the support of the tens of thousands of other passengers like you who have made Mokulele their favorite island hopper. So on behalf of myself and my family, and our extended family of the nearly 250 employees that make up the airline, our deepest mahalo.
Speaking of the Mokulele family, it’s my great pleasure to introduce you to Rob McKinney, who has assumed the title of President and the position of my co-pilot here at the airline. In short, he’s my right-hand man. Those of you who are familiar with Mokulele know we’re one of the only short-hop airlines in the country that chooses to fly with two pilots aboard to ensure the safest possible in-flight experience for our passengers. It is in that spirit of partnership that I’m happy to welcome Rob aboard.
While Rob hails from the Pacific Northwest he’s no newcomer to the islands. In early 2000 Rob directed operations at Pacific Wings, then moved to Mokulele Airlines where he served as C.O.O. from 2005 – 2007. Most recently Rob was honored with a Distinguished Technology Alumni Award from Purdue University. We couldn’t be happier to have Rob back.
Meanwhile, we couldn’t be more pleased to announce that we won a very competitive bid to launch service in California, where we’ll be offering the highly competitive prices, convenient schedules, and on-time flights you know us for. Mokulele started flying between Imperial/El Centro and Los Angeles International Airport on March 23rd of this year. Starting in October 2016 Mokulele will be headed to the wine country of Santa Maria, California. So– if your travels should take you to Los Angeles, it would be our great pleasure to welcome you aboard at Terminal 6 in LAX, which offers convenient connections to Alaska Airlines, Delta, and United. A hui hou.
