‘Ohana To Start Cargo Division

‘Ohana by Hawaiian, the Hawaiian Airlines' subsidiary, will launch an inter-island cargo division in the first half of 2016, with three ATR72-212Fs. It will be branded with the ‘Ohana livery, and operated by Empire Airlines (as with the passenger operations). This new cargo venture will operate out of Hawai‘i's major airports, and feed inter-island, domestic, and international routes.

This is Hawaiian's second venture with freighters, as the airline had mainland-based cargo operations using L-188F Electras from the late 70s to early 80s.

Further details in this Hawaiian Airlines press release.

On July 12th, we posted an article regarding ATR72s for ‘Ohana. Now we know what those ATRs will be used for. N807HC is the first of the three. Other registrations on hold by Hawaiian are N806HC and N810HC.
