Aloha! Hawaiian 717 PHKO-PHNL

Hi everyone!

UVAL recently got a codeshare agreement with Aloha Virtual which now allows for inter island flights with the HA 717! This is a really fun experience going on the 1 hour flight between some places in Hawaii other than Honolulu for once in IF. Anyway, enjoy the pics!

Definetly, great place to go and fly on some nice short routes from places where you don’t see many other aircraft except for PHNL!
