Mokulele Flight Services Temporarily Suspends Operations – Go! Airlines Providing Temporary Transportation

go!, Hawaii’s low-cost inter-island airline, has been advised by its code share partner Mokulele Flight Service, Inc. that Mokulele voluntarily suspended operations temporarily to permit the completion of an internal audit. Mokulele flights are expected to resume shortly and in the interim, go! is providing transportation assistance to affected passengers.

The entire go! fleet is unaffected by these cancelations and jet service is continuing as scheduled to all destinations. Once Mokulele’s audit is completed and any identified corrective actions have been implemented, Mokulele will resume its full schedule, which should be Sunday.

“We have worked closely with Mokulele during this service disruption and remain committed to providing assistance to affected passengers,” said Jonathan Ornstein, Chairman and Chief Executive of Mesa Air Group, Inc.

In order to assist Mokulele with the quick resolution of these inspections, go! has assigned teams of employees that include aviation maintenance technicians and quality assurance inspectors to provide support and additional expertise to Mokulele.

Mesa currently operates 77 aircraft with approximately 419 daily system departures to 93 cities, 35 states, Canada and Mexico. Mesa operates as US Airways Express and United Express under contractual agreements with US Airways and United Airlines, respectively, and independently as Mesa Airlines and go!. The Company, founded by Larry and Janie Risley in New Mexico in 1982, has approximately 2,700 employees and was awarded Regional Airline of the Year by Air Transport World magazine in 1992 and 2005.
