Welcome aboard Southern Airways/Mokulele Airlines. As we start a new year, it’s a relief for most Americans to “turn the page” on 2020. We at Southern are no different—it was a difficult year for travel and tourism, as it was for so many industries around the world.
With vaccines now being distributed in large quantities and cities reopening to visitors, we’re excited to get our full fleet back in the air and return to a feeling closer to normal for our nearly 500 loyal team members. In 2021, we’re re-launching our Florida service to Palm Beach, Tampa, Key West, & Destin, along with all of our New England cities connected to Nantucket. Plus, we’re restoring frequency in cities where we’re the dominant (or the only) carrier, like Kapalua, Maui and Kaunakakai, Molokai.
In addition to getting people back in the air, we’ve also been working to do our part in the fight against Covid-19. Every night when passenger flights end, we transform several of our planes for cargo operations and fly thousands of Coronavirus tests kits around the country. We’re now running up to three shifts per day of pilot crews on each aircraft to ensure that we get the job done!
Whether you’re headed to one of our great beach destinations for a much-deserved vacation, or back home after a long business trip, or to visit a relative you haven’t seen in months, we’re thankful you’re flying Southern Airways and Mokulele Airlines. Welcome back!
Onward and upward,
Chairman and CEO
