Go! Mokulele's load factor up in February, but passenger count down
Go! Mokulele said its airplanes were 70.1 percent full in February, up from 66.3 percent the same month a year earlier.
However, the number of passengers flown by the interisland carrier fell to 50,590, a 9.7 percent decline from February 2009.
“While capacity adjustments provided or improved passenger loads, the decline in Hawaii visitor numbers and the seasonally quiet demand for interisland travel resulted in fewer overall travelers compared to the same period last year,” said Paul Skellon, the airline’s vice president.
