Default Re: Hawaii's Interisland Air War - Chapter 4

None of the commuter airlines in Hawaii get the Essential Air Services subsidy. This happened after Pacific Wings voluntarily pulled out of the subsidy program after it learned that Go was to enter the same market.

And from this article last year:

Quote:
Pacific Wings, which has been provided EAS subsidies over the last decade for service to Hana on Maui, Kamuela on the Big Island and to Kalaupapa, Molokai, will voluntarily give up the subsidies later this year when its contract ends, because it believes it can fly those routes profitably without subsidies.
