When we at MANVIL would go from island to island, we always caught a plane of some sort. Sure, there were other transports like Sea Flight, or the super ferry, but for real time, more reliable travel, air is the best route. They were as timely as a London Tube, as direct as a sadistic nun, and as comfortable as the Bluebirds kids use to get to school.
The options were few back in the day. There was Aloha Airlines, which was considered by the public at large to be the sensible, better organized way to fly. And then there was Hawaiian Airlines, which although seemingly a little easy breezy with customer service, had a perfect safety record having never once lost a plane or a passenger. Ever. A record which holds true today.
Then one day Aloha Airlines filled the local paper’s front page with new it had ceased operating overnight. Much sadness.
This is where MANVIL gets drawn in, as our attorney, S. Keates Esq. has put considerable thought and interest into a new regional airline, Air Waianae.
When Mr. Keates has an idea that needs graphics, we end up putting them together. What can we say, he’s got refined taste and likes working with us. It should be noted, we love working with him as well. Great clients call for genius ideas, and more is coming on this front…. stay tuned.
Air Waianae will be a small carrier out of Kalaeloa Airport (JRF), formerly Barber’s Point Naval Air Station. (USNAS)
Kalaeloa (JRF) was chosen as Air Waianae’s hub of choice in order to serve the tourists and residents on the west side of Oahu, and to help ease the transportation woes to and from Honolulu International. (HNL)
Air Waianae service to all of Hawaii’s regional airports is set to begin late 2014 with seven Pilatus PC-12s flying to all Hawaiian regional hubs as well as weekly flights to Johnston Island under contract from the DoD.
We’ll keep you informed as we learn more. We’re stoked with the graphic though. If you goin’ get high, get Air Waianae!
