Good news for Maui tourism out of the airline industry. We are not sure how the airlines are going to be able to afford the increases, but there are no complaints coming from the Maui side.
As reported by Maui News,
"US Airways, which has been flying twice daily to Maui and once daily to Kauai, will double that toward the end of the second quarter.
South Korean carriers are thinking about starting the first direct charter flights to Hawaii, and other airlines are expressing interest.
But the most exciting single marketing ploy on the table this year is the attempt to sell Hawaii as a location for episodes in a Korean drama. This is still in the talking stage, but Korean dramas are huge across Asia and HTA is eager to publicize the islands in one of them, according to HTA officials."
