Hawaii interisland carrier go! Mokulele Airlines will launch twice daily round-trip flights between the islands of Oahu and Lanai beginning on May 20.
The big news for travelers interested in a Lanai vacation, however, are the go! Mokulele's introductory fares for the flights. A very reasonable $39 one-way fare, for travel between May 20 and Aug. 31, 2010.
The catch? You’ll have to purchase your tickets between now and April 16 to get the discounted fare. The $39 fare also has several blackout dates, and will not be offered for Friday and Sunday flights.
Honolulu to Lanai City flights will leave Oahu at 9:50 a.m. and 1:40 p.m. daily. Lanai City to Honolulu flights will leave Lanai at 10:50 a.m. and 2:40 p.m. daily. Flight time between islands is 36 minutes. Mokulele will be flying nine-passenger Cessna Grand Caravan 208 B aircraft on the route.

If you’ve never visited Lanai, and are planning to be on Oahu between May 20 and Aug. 31, go! Mokulele’s introductory Lanai deal offers a great opportunity to pencil in a two- or three-day vacation on the island.
One-way flights to the island are usually double the cost of go! Mokulele’s introductory fare, depending on what carrier you fly and when you fly. Go! Mokulele Air’s lowest one-way fare from Oahu to Lanai outside of the introductory fare is $70. Interisland carrier Island Air also offers service from Oahu to Lanai.
