Situated in Honolulul CP, in the City and County of Honolulu, Hawaii, the aptly named Aloha Air Cargo has been one of the most prolific air cargo companies of the United States. The company was first founded back in 1946, and was then known as the Trans- Pacific Airlines. The Aloha Air Cargo was once a part of the Aloha Airlines, but as the passenger airline became defunct in 2008, Aloha Air Cargo became a separate, independent cargo service operator. The Aloha Air Cargo operates a fleet size of 7 air planes and travels to 5 destinations. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Saitchuk Resources, Inc.
Saiitchuk actually received a controlling interest in the company when Aloha Airlines was shut off, and the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. It’s then owners decided to auction off the company, and after a protracted process in which several companies first showed interest and then withdrew, Saitchuk managed to come out on top. Currently, Aloha Air Cargo travels to Hilo, Honolulu, Kahului, Lihue and Kona. The airline has a total number of 5 Boeing 737 airplanes, and also has two Saab 340s. The company has also ordered a Boeing 737- 300, a larger version than the Boeing 737- 200C. The aircraft was previously owned by Lufthansa. The previous aircrafts that the currently was using were a part of Aloha Airlines, and were brought by the owners when the company was auctioned off.
Saitchuk Resources set up a separate subsidiary by the name of Aeko Kula Inc. in order to operate the Aloha Air Cargo. Even though the company generally operates in small scale operations, holding around 6 to 18 flights all over the Hawaiian Islands, it’s still a pretty profitable business compared to the other businesses within the air cargo industry.
