The captivating island of Maui, or the “The Valley Isle” is surely filled with chances to venture around and unwind from your busy lifestyles.
And to make your ideal trip there come true, prepare to travel with grace and class with ROAM MAUI, ready to take over the skies thanks to its direct weekly flights from Mau’s
Kahului Airport and Los Angeles, San Jose, and Seattle with a membership-based air shuttle service.
Chris Early, David Young and Darin Greer, the people behind ROAM MAUI, created such a concept for travel in hopes of meeting the needs of traveling Maui residents, going back
and forth between the mainland and their homes on the island.
All ROAM Maui flights shall use private airport lounge departures and arrivals for easy boarding, hop-on/hop-off booking policies and Air Concierge services from the time
of booking onwards. Qualified homeowners can have a vertical family membership mode, granting access to a family and 4 extra guests to fly with ROAM Maui yearly with each membership. Plus, membership plans are included of a limitless, all-you-can-fly program.
For residents of Maui used to flying privately to and from the island, the price of an annual ROAM Maui membership fee is less than a single round trip through a private jet.
This gives more room for passengers to travel with intriguing senses of security, discretion, and a commitment to a more balanced environment. Plus, this model decreases the carbon impact of private flying, saving over 60 million pounds of Co2 emissions a
The ROAM Maui Experience has flights on two specialized, VIP-configured Boeing 737-700s. The all-first-class planes feature just 58 first-class seats, complete with a fresh
interior refurbishment, a high-quality, purification system, ultra-fast WiFi, and the latest StageTM On Demand entertainment system.
Once you’re flying in the area, you can delve further with the ROAM Maui experience through its in-flight culinary & beverage program, showcasing fine cuisine from celebrity
chefs and wines from recognized 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).
If you have a paw friend, you’re bound to enjoy this feature. Heighten your happiness for the flight experience thanks to the ‘Pets on Jets program’, which eases flying with
furry companions. Members have access to an innovative partnership with the Maui Humane Society’s Direct Release program, urging pets to stay with their owners from their mainland home without quarantine. Not only that, all profits from the services shall
be redirected toward Maui’s animals in need.
ROAM Maui is affiliated with air mobility consultancy ROAM Private Air. The Boeing 737-700s are staffed and ran by Hillwood Airways, a certified U.S. direct air carrier. The
service shall aim at 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.
