An airline says passengers are getting lost and missing their flights because of a lack of road signs helping them find an out-of-the way Hawaii airport.

Mokulele Airlines is the first commercial airline to offer service out of a west Oahu airport that's at a former naval air station. On July 1, the airline began offering three roundtrip flights a day to Kahului, Maui, out of the Kalaeloa (cah-leye-LOH'-ah) Airport.

Chief Executive Officer Ron Hansen says the airline has had a lot of no-shows because of lost passengers.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports ( ) there's no airport sign on the freeway, and the road to the airport has a series of merges and turns through some unpopulated areas.

The state Department of Transportation says it's working with various agencies to post signs.
