Flying to the Inter-islands on Mokulele Airlines

 

Flying to the Inter-islands on Mokulele Airlines and it’s nice for a change to get on board a smaller plane. Flying these big jetliners can take their toll on you, if you do as much flying as I do. With the smaller plane there is usually more leg room, the plane flies lower, which allows you to see the many scenic views of our islands. Hawaii receives a high rate of rain fall each year, mostly in the mountain areas. The mountains of Kauai receive the highest rain fall levels in the world, coming in at 452 inches a year, and that’s more than 1 inch a day.

Getting to and from the Hawaiian island of Molokai truly was half the fun.

I flew on Mokulele Airlines to and from Molokai via Honolulu on a tiny 9-passenger Cessna prop plane. Baggage-checking and baggage claim takes about one minute and passengers stroll across the Tarmac to clamber aboard.

Every seat is a window seat and passengers are seated by weight (yes, the check-in agent asks or weighs you so they can balance the plane). The pilot just swivels in his seat to give the safety instructions and then the little plane takes off with dazzling views of the shorelines and a humpback whale spouting in the ocean.

Everyone knows someone on the plane since Molokai is like a small town with just 7,500 residents.

On one of the flights a passenger pulls out her ukulele and starts strumming and singing a lilting Hawaiian song. She switches to Beatles’ songs and all the passengers, and the pilot, cheerfully sing along on the half-hour flight. Best in-flight entertainment ever.

The Mokulele Airlines also flies to the island of Maui, Lana’i, Oahu, and the Big Island of Hawaii. Flights start at $59.00 “One-Way.”

Flying to the Inter-islands on Mokulele Airlines really brings you closer to the beauty of our islands. So please give Mokulele airlines a try the next time you are looking to catch an inter-island flight here on our island paradise…
