Mokulele Airlines confirmed Tuesday that it plans to begin the first-ever commercial service out of Kalaeloa Airport on July 1 and will gradually ease into the operation by offering three daily nonstop round-trip flights between Kahului, Maui, and the former Barbers Point Naval Air Station. 

Tickets went on sale Tuesday at an introductory fare of $69 one way for all seats in July and August. Travelers must fly round trip to get that fare and tickets have to purchased by May 31 to get that rate. Normal fares will range from $75 to $120 each way.

"It's been a yearlong goal of ours and it's finally happening and we'll see what the reception is," Mokulele Chief Executive Officer Ron Hansen said. "And if it warrants more flights based on bookings, we'll add more flights."

Departing flights from Kalaeloa to Kahului will be at 7:35 a.m., 1 p.m. and 6:20 p.m. Flights will depart Kahului to Kalaeloa at 6:15 a.m., 11:40 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Parking at Kalaeloa will be free in certain designated areas and passengers will not be required to go through Transportation Security Administration screening because it is not required for aircraft with nine or fewer seats.

Mokulele said it plans to create 6 to 10 new positions for customer service agents, ramp agents, mechanics, pilots and management personnel.
