egtmedia59The U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded Mokulele Airlines a four-year, $1.76 million essential air service contract to provide flights between the Waimea-Kohala Airport on Hawaii’s Big Island and the Kahului Airport on Maui.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that Kailua-Kona-based Mokulele will provide 12 round-trip flights per week under the federally subsidized contract, and will start service on Sept. 21. The newspaper reports Mokulele will replace Pacific Wings, which ceased regular service last month with the exception of the Waimea-Kahului route, under the government’s order.

Honolulu-based Makani Kai Air, which has an EAS contract to provide service to Kalaupapa on Molokai, had also bid on the contract.
