Airline complains fliers can't find airport in Hawaii
What say the Hawaiian-based Milepointers? @bobsgt @HiIslands ? Is this true? Or is this just another failed Hawaiian-based airline complaining about business conditions in the Sandwich Isles?
Mokulele Airlines is unhappy because there are no freeway or road signs directing passengers to the airport. In a sense, these signs are a form of advertising because the Kalaeloa Airport is not even on most consumers' radar screen. It used to be a small naval air station so most people don't even think of flying from there. The benefit in using the Kalaeloa Airport is NO TSA and cheap fares ($44 to Molokai). Otherwise, the airport is in the middle of nowhere with no available connecting flights or airlines.
Perhaps they could hire some of those "spinning sign" guys.
It seems like they should be able to pay or encourage the local authorities to post signs. Signs aren't that expensive compared to the costs of running an airport.
That alone would be reason for me to want to fly there.
You worried about dem Samoans, Bruddah?
When it comes to the State of Hawai'i Department of Transportation things move very, very slowly. (Including the traffic.)
