HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Island Air today revealed a new business model and brand overhaul that includes a new website,  logo and a new fleet of aircraft.

Island Air is upgrading its fleet with ATR42 and ATR72 aircraft. The new aircraft are more fuel efficient, and carry more passengers than the Dash 8 aircraft that are currently being used.

"We've been working on our new business model for well over a year and today, for the public's first time viewing, we're delighted to unveil our new look marking our new beginning," said Lesley Kaneshiro, CEO of Island Air. "We will be the first to operate this comfortable ATR72 Jet-Prop aircraft in Hawaii and with additional aircraft delivery on the horizon, we'll be Hawaii's fastest growing inter-island carrier."

The changes and additions to Island Air's brand will take place incrementally with the complete rebranding targeted for completion in the fall.

Founded in 1980 to provide scheduled service between Princeville and Honolulu, the airline now offers 352 weekly flights between the islands of Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Kauai and the Island of Hawaii.
