Mesa Air Group will launch an
independent interisland Hawaiian airline next year. The
high-frequency service -- which will connect the towns of Hilo and
Kailua-Kona on the Big Island; Honolulu, Oahu; Lihue, Kauai; and
Kahului, Maui -- is expected to operate with primarily web-based
ticketing, reservations and marketing systems. Detailed schedules
will be revealed in the near future.
