Mokulele Airlines has announced that plans are well under way to begin air service at Kalaeloa Airport on west Oahu this summer.
Kalaeloa is located at the former Barber's Point Naval Air Base John Rogers Field. Mokulele is working in co-operation with the state of Hawaii Department of Transportation Airports Division towards a start date of 1 July, at which time Mokulele would begin offering three daily roundtrip flights between Kalaeloa (JRF) and Kahului, Maui (OGG).
In addition to completing the construction projects and other preparations required to open the new airport, Mokulele is currently working on flight scheduling and staffing. The opening of the airport for commercial traffic will initially create 6-10 new positions for customer service agents, ramp agents, mechanics, pilots and management personnel. The airport’s west Oahu location would make these positions ideal for residents of the Kapolei and Ewa Beach areas.
When the new service begins, Kalaeloa will become the ninth airport served by Mokulele Airlines. As with most of the other airports it serves, parking is available and passengers will save time by not being required to go through TSA screenings.
