To mark our 15th anniversary of service to the Hawaiian Islands, we are deepening our commitment to the state with an expanded partnership with Mokulele Airlines, our newest mileage plan partner, beginning in early 2023. By joining forces we are making it easier and more convenient for our guests to fly to more places on the islands.

Mokulele offers more inter-island flights than any other airline in Hawaii, with more than 800 flights per week – including up to 150 departures on peak days – to 10 destinations throughout the state of Aloha. With connecting service on Mokulele, our guests enjoy faster access to seven new locations and two islands not served directly from Alaska, such as Hilo, Lanai and Molokai. Mokulele is the only airline in Hawaii with regular scheduled flights to Lanai and Molokai.

This is how our guests will benefit from our new partnership with Mokulele Airlines from the beginning of 2023:

Expanding our partnership with Alaska Airlines is the next step in becoming Hawaii’s most comprehensive flight services provider.”
