Mokulele Airlines will begin daily flights from Hollywood Burbank Airport to the Central Coast beginning Oct. 3.
The airline based in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii is the first new scheduled carrier at the San Fernando Valley’s only commercial airfield in about four years.
Mokulele will have two daily nonstop flights to Santa Maria Public Airport and two back to Burbank starting Oct. 3. These flights replace those flying to Santa Maria from Los Angeles International Airport.
The airline uses 9-passenger Cessna 208 EX Grand Caravan turboprop aircraft flown by two pilots.
The last new commercial airline to fly out of Hollywood Burbank was SeaPort Airlines Inc., whose service lasted from 2013 to January 2016. The airline flew between Burbank and El Centro, San Diego and Visalia.
