HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Kona-based Mokulele Airlines announced Monday that it will soon launch daily service between Maui and Lanai.

Mokulele's Chief Executive Officer Ron Hansen says the company is "happy to follow through with providing affordable and needed flights."

The new service starts April 15 and will include one daily flight from Lanai to Maui, and two daily direct trips from Maui to Lanai.

"We are happy to provide the only nonstop scheduled flights between Lanai and the Valley Isle," Hansen said.
