Welcome aboard Southern Airways/Mokulele Airlines. We’re glad you’re back in the air and taking part in the worldwide resurgence of travel after a long year of Covid isolation. Our nearly 500 team members across six U.S. time zones never took a break—it was business-as-usual, as we worked to fly cargo, personal protective equipment, Covid test kits, front line workers, and many everyday Americans to and from our 37 North American destinations. I couldn’t be prouder of the fact that we didn’t furlough a single employee during the pandemic, and we’re already back to 100% of our pre-Covid flight levels.
I want to welcome our newest hub, newest hometown, and newest airport to the Southern/Mokulele system. In June, we’ll open our Denver hub and welcome Chadron, Nebraska onboard as our latest Essential Air Service community. In April, we initiated new service to Hilo, Hawaii (or tenth Hawaiian destination), and in May, we restored New England service and opened our newest airport (and second Boston airport), Hanscom Field. Not many commuter airlines serve two airports in the same metro area, but providing multiple options to our Boston customers has been a goal of Southern for a long time.
In addition to these new cities, our original Memphis-Destin route came back April 30th, and Palm Beach – Tampa returns four times daily starting June 28th. It won’t be long before things truly start to feel near-normal again!
Whether you’re a local resident flying home to Molokai or you’re a tourist heading for a week’s vacation in Nantucket or Palm Beach, we’re glad you’ve chosen Southern Airways / Mokulele Airlines. You are the reason we’re here, and we sincerely appreciate your business.
Onward and upward,
Chairman and CEO
