About

Empire Airlines is a US airline from Idaho. The airline offers scheduled passenger flights and cargo flights and is based at Coeur d'Alene Airport in Kootenai County, Idaho. Including passenger and cargo, the airline flies to more than 50 destinations within the US and Canada.

Although the airline flies both cargo and passenger flights, the majority of its flights are cargo, including all of its mainland US flights. The only passenger flights that the airline flies are within the Hawaiian islands, which it operates on the behalf of Ohana by Hawaiian

Empire Airlines only operates on behalf of other airlines. This means that it doesn't use its own branding and logo on any of its flights and instead uses the branding of the airline that it's flying on behalf of. Having said that, it's easy to tell if you're on a flight that's being operated by Empire Airlines, as under the airline name on the plane, it will usually read 'operated by Empire Airlines'.

With cargo flights, it usually operates on the behalf of Fed Ex. 

The airline doesn't have an exclusive contract with any carrier, so, in theory, can operate on behalf of any airline in the future if it reaches an agreement.
