For more than 20 years, the sprawling island of Maui, Hawaii, has dominated the destination bucket list of many travelers. The peninsula is known for its lush and world-famous beaches, unparalleled views of migrating humpback whales and vivid sunsets.
Explore a new way to embark on an adventure of a lifetime to “The Valley Isle” and its vast regions with ROAM Maui,
the newest semi-private air carrier in the sky. It operates as a membership-based air shuttle service offering direct weekly flights between Mau’s Kahului Airport and Los Angeles, San Jose, and Seattle.
ROAM Maui strives to exceed and dominate airline travel by introducing a new twist to the old saying, ” We Travel In Style.” By blending the exclusivity and ease of flying privately with the economic scale of commercial aircraft.
The group created this new brand of traveling to fulfill the needs of Maui residents who frequently travel between the mainland and their homes on the island.
All ROAM Maui flights will utilize private airport lounge departures and arrivals for hassle-free boarding, easy hop-on/hop-off booking policies and Air Concierge services from the time of booking to the onboard experience and beyond. Qualified homeowners have the advantage of a vertical family membership model that allows a family and their guests (four-legged companions included) to travel with ROAM Maui yearly with each membership. Additionally, membership plans are part of a limitless, all-you-can-fly program, meaning unlimited flights throughout the year with no blackout dates.
For residents of Maui accustomed to flying privately to and from the island, the annual ROAM Maui membership fee costs less than a single round trip on a private executive jet, allowing more passengers to travel with new senses of security, discretion and a commitment to a more balanced environment. This semi-private model dramatically reduces the carbon impact by taking executive jets out of the sky from members flying their jets to the island, saving an estimated 60 million pounds of Co2 emissions per year.
The ROAM Maui Experience is flown on two specialized, VIP-configured Boeing 737-700s. The all-first-class planes feature just 58 first-class seats, complete with a new interior refurbishment, state-of-the-art purification system, ultra-fast WiFi and the latest StageTM On Demand entertainment system. Once in the air, the ROAM Maui experience reaches new heights through its in-flight culinary & beverage program, which features cuisine from a rotating list of celebrity chefs and wines from celebrated winemakers. The culinary advisor is James Beard Foundation’s winner of Best Chef in America, Charlie Palmer, alongside the fine wine, including Hall Wines in Napa Valley, from Ambassador Kathryn Hall (a ROAM Maui Member).
This premium leisure travel experience also includes access to PAWS Club with its unique ‘Pets on Jets program’, which makes traveling with furry companions a breeze. Members have access to an innovative partnership with the Maui Humane Society’s Direct Release program, enabling pets to accompany owners from their mainland home to Maui with no island quarantine restriction. Additionally, 100% of profits for services will go toward Maui’s animals in need.
ROAM Maui is the brainchild of partners Chris Early, David Young and Darin Greer and is an affiliate company to air mobility consultancy ROAM Private Air. The Boeing 737-700s are staffed and operated by Hillwood Airways, a certified U.S. direct air carrier. The service will target homeowners from five exclusive residential communities and associations on Maui –Kapalua Resort Association, Kaanapali Golf Estates, Makena Golf & Beach Club, Kula Community Association and Wailea Resort Association.
