Dedicated to honoring American service members, Island Air offered select discounts to eligible military personnel on Veterans Day 2015. On November 11, the airline enabled active and retired military members to purchase interisland flights with a special 50 percent discount on base fares.
For more than 35 years, Island Air has offered a large volume of flights between Hawaiian destinations such as Lanai, Oahu, and Maui. To purchase discounted tickets, veterans could visit the Island Air ticket counters at Honolulu International Airport, Lanai Airport, and Kahului Airport. Military personnel also had the opportunity to visit Wet ’n’ Wild Hawaii, where they enjoyed special admission and the opportunity to purchase discounted plane tickets on site.
Island Air CEO Dave Pflieger hailed the discount as a way to recognize the selfless service of men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces. Pflieger, a former officer and B52 pilot in the U.S. Air Force, expressed hope that the promotion would enable service members to spend quality time with their families in Hawaii.
