George D. Szigeti, president and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA), issued the following statement regarding today’s announcement from Island Air that the airline is halting flight operations between the islands of Hawaii on November 10.

“The news of Island Air ceasing flight operations is truly unfortunate, especially for the 400 employees whose families depended on the airline for their livelihood. With Hawaii’s strong economy, we are hopeful they will find new opportunities to re-start their careers in travel and other industries locally.
“Island Air’s service was appreciated by residents and visitors needing to travel between the islands. We thank the airline and its employees for the quality, reliable service they provided to interisland travelers during their 37 years of business.”
