Goodbye to Hawaii Island Air

Goodbye to Hawaii Island Air

Hawaii Island Air has officially closed operations, as of Saturday 11 November 2017.
Earlier this month, Island Air was forced to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in an effort to continue operations following threats of legal action by the Lessors of Island Air’s aircraft to ground and repossess the company’s fleet.

Island Air was unable to get a new investor or lender to provide funding to support airline flight operations and a successful reorganisation.
‘Island Air has taken every measure possible to avoid this tremendous hardship to its passengers,’ says David Uchiyama, Island Air president and CEO.
‘Island Air appreciates the loyalty and support its customers, management, employees, and vendors have shown the airline, especially during the last few weeks of this bankruptcy process. Island Air is proud of its 37-year history of service to the state of Hawaii.’
