Mesa Air Group (Phoenix) has elected to prematurely end its relationship with go!Express partner Mokulele Airlines (Kailua-Kona). Effective March 25, Mesa’s go! Hawaiian inter-island subsidiary will code share with Island Air (Honolulu) for feeder traffic. Republic Airways recently announced its intention to increase its share in Mokulele Airlines. The two parties are now squaring off as competitors.
