go! Mokulele is not included in parent Mesa Air Group’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, the interisland carrier said today in a news release.

Mesa provides regional jet services to go! Mokulele under a flight services agreement, and the joint venture is a separate entity, the news release said.
“During the Mesa Air Group restructuring go! Mokulele will continue to operate as before ... ,” Mesa chairman and chief executive Jonathan Ornstein said in a written statement.
“Customers can be assured that tickets will continue to be sold and honored, all terms and conditions governing tickets purchased remain the same, and our frequent flyer program remains intact.”
Mesa Air Group filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy today in an effort to shed financial obligations for leases on airplanes it no longer needs.
Mesa said in its filing that getting rid of extra planes will allow the company to reorganize operations and become more competitive.
