Mokulele Airlines is one of the most cost-effective ways of island hopping in Hawaii. I used Mokulele Airlines when traveling from Big Island to Maui. The fare costs around $90 and the travel time is 40 minutes.
The Cessna Grand Caravans of Mokulele Airlines are the youngest fleet of planes in the State of Hawaii. They carry up to 9 passengers apart from 2 pilots. This is a TINY plane. So, if you are six-foot-tall, the ride may be a bit cramped for you.
On Mokulele Airlines, you are allowed one free personal item and one free carry on provided they do not exceed the dimensions 22″W X 14″H X 9″L and weigh no more than 15 pounds. Checked items cannot exceed 70 pounds and must be 30″W X 15″H X 45″L.
No food and beverages are offered during the flight.
One of the perks of traveling in Mokulele Airlines is that passengers can enjoy panoramic views of the islands and their geographical features. In addition, I had a beautiful view of the setting sun since I traveled in the evening.
P.S. If you suffer from motion sickness, I would recommend taking Dramamine. Since the airplane is small, it’s going to move around a lot during taking off especially when traveling through clouds. 😖
