Hawaii notes challenges in support new airline routes, growth

21 March, 2018

Hawaii Department of Transportation Airports Division fiscal management officer Ross Higashi stated airlines are interested in expanded service to Hawaii, although there are some bureaucratic and infrastructure challenges which are slowing down the process (civilbeat, 19-Mar-2018). "Airlines are raring to go, to get the projects off the ground sooner than later in order for us to be competitive internationally", Mr Higashi said, adding: "Truly, I feel there must be a better way for us to get projects off the ground, get services quicker, and expedite the whole process a lot faster".
