Mokulele Airlines today announced the launch of same day rush shipping service to and from the 10 airport locations it serves on Oʻahu, Maui, the Big Island of Hawaiʻi, Lānaʻi and Molokaʻi.

Company officials say the service is available for envelopes up to five pounds and boxes up to 70 pounds.

According to a company announcement, individuals using the service simply deliver their package to any Mokulele ticket counter and the package can be picked up just hours later at the destination airport.

A special introductory flat rate of $5 for envelopes or boxes weighing up to 10 pounds is being offered through Dec. 31, 2014. In the New Year, regular rates will range from $8 to $50 depending on weight. A special flat rate of $5 for envelopes weighing up to .99 pounds is also available for outbound shipments departing from Honolulu International Airport.

Mokulele Airlines has been in operation since 1994 and was purchased by TransPac Aviation in 2011.  Airline officials say the goal is to provide high quality, low-cost interisland air service.

The airline is headquartered in Kailua-Kona, and now offers more than 120 flights a day between the islands aboard its fleet of nine-passenger, turbine-powered Cessna Grand Caravans.
