If you’re looking to book flights between Hawaii’s islands, you’ve got one less airline to choose from.
The inter-island carrier go! has stopped all inter-island flights after struggling financially. Its parent company, the Arizona-based Mesa Airlines, is pulling the planes back to the mainland U.S. for code-share flights with United Airlines and US Airways.
Go! had operated inter-island flights since 2006 until it stopped flying in Hawaii on April 1 this year.
Passengers with bookings on go! can get refunds or the airline will book them on Hawaiian Airlines flights.
The small (but expanding) inter-island carrier Mokulele Airlines also will honor tickets purchased on go!
Other airlines also offer flights between the islands, including Hawaiian Airlines and Island Air, which is owned by tech billionaire Larry Ellison (who also owns most of the Hawaiian island of Lanai).
Travelers with flights booked on go! can get information at the go! website. Or try phoning 888-435-9462, although it’s been hard to get through in recent days.
