WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - Island Air says it plans to stop flying to Molokai.

The company announced Tuesday evening that the last flights to Molokai will be April 1.

The Maui News (https://is.gd/zJ5K1C) says the company was purchased last year by billionaire Larry Ellison.

According to the company, all of the airline’s Molokai-based employees will be offered an opportunity to transfer elsewhere.

Island Air says it will contact customers with confirmed reservations to or from Molokai on April 2 or later. The company says those customers will receive ticket refunds or have their reservations transferred to another air carrier.
