Although the tears are still drying a year after the end of Aloha Airlines, Aloha Air Cargo is still riding high and continues to deliver fast, economical and reliable transport of goods between the Hawaiian Islands. On Wednesday, May 6, Aloha Air Cargo held a blessing ceremony at its new air cargo facility in Kahului. The new facility houses approximately 60 shift employees that handle cargo from 15 flights arriving or departing daily. The new facility will also provide cargo-handling services for Delta Airlines, Northwest Airlines and American Airlines. A number of Maui dignitaries joined the company’s executives, employees, clients and partners for a traditional Hawaiian blessing and lei untying performed by Kahu Alika, the Kahu of Keawala‘i Congregational Church in Makena. After the blessing, an Aloha Air Cargo plane departed, transporting approximately 1,200 pounds of Maui Gold pineapple from Maui to O‘ahu, displaying “a symbol of hospitality and a show of support for sustainability in Hawai‘i.” The fresh fruit was then donated to the Hawai‘i Food Bank.
