Mokulele Airlines, whose parent company is Southern Airways Express, announced plans Monday to add two 28-seat Saab 340B Plus aircraft, which have the capability to carry more than three times the number of passengers that are on its standard nine-passenger Cessna Caravan turboprop airplanes. The Saab aircraft have overhead bins and offer plenty of cargo room for super large and bulky items, including wheelchairs.
