Aloha and Mokulele Airlines Team Up for Air Cargo Express

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- Aloha Airlines teamed up with Mokulele Airlines to expand its air cargo service to smaller communities of Molokai, Lanai, Kapalua and West Maui beginning in April.

Mokulele will operate Aloha Air Cargo Express daily for Aloha Airlines using a Cessna 208 Cargomaster.

The Cargomaster is capable of carrying a payload of about 4,000 pounds.

"This partnership will bring tangible benefits to shippers and customers awaiting shipments from all points in the Islands," said David Banmiller, Aloha president and CEO.

The first Aloha Air Cargo Express plane will arrive in the Islands within 60 days.  A second plane is expected to arrive later this year.
