Island Air (Honolulu) has added a special 30th Anniversary logo (to the left of the forward door) to its Bombardier DHC-8-103 N829EX (msn 146).

The company was incorporated as Princeville Airways in 1980 by Colorado-based Consolidated Oil and Gas. It began scheduled services on September 9, 1980, between Honolulu and Princeville (a resort town on Kauai) using two de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otters. The company served the regular route between Princeville and Honolulu, primarily for Princeville Resort hotel guests.

In May 1987, Consolidated Oil and Gas sold Princeville Airways to the Aloha Air Group, the parent company of Aloha Airlines. Princeville Airways was renamed Aloha IslandAir and served the growing inter-island commuter routes that Aloha Airlines could not accommodate with its Boeing 737s. In June 1992, Aloha IslandAir registered the name of Island Air as its trade name. In 1995, newly renamed Island Air was granted FAA certification to operate larger aircraft in the islands.
