Island Air (www.islandair.com) was formerly owned by Aloha Air Group, parent company of Aloha Airlines. In December 2003 an agreement was signed between the two carriers making Island Air Hawaiis third independent airline. As a result, Aloha Island Air is now Hawaii Island Air, Inc. doing business as Island Air.
Today Island Air offers United customers connecting codeshare service between Honolulu (HNL) and Kapalua West Maui (JHM), Molokai (MKK), and Lanai City (LCY). All inter-island flights depart from the Inter-Island Terminal at the Honolulu International Airport. The Wiki-Wiki bus provides easy transportation between United and Island Air flights.
In addition, connecting service from Maui (OGG) and Molokai (MKK) is available.

As Hawaii's leader in commuter service, Island Air operates daily flights to Moloka'i, Lana'i, Kapalua West Maui, Kahului, Kailua-Kona & Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii, and Lihue. Island Air has earned a reputation for warm, personalized care and attentive service while taking passengers to Hawaii's community and premiere resort destinations.
Island Air operates a fleet of 37 seat de Havilland DASH-8 aircraft. This aircraft allows for on time reliable service to all the destinations within 30-60 minutes. Flying at lower altitudes, our passengers are afforded a magnificent view of the islands. Other scenery may include pristine coastlines, beautiful waterfalls, and frolicking whales.
