Pa­paya ship­pers have ben­e­fited from the start of United Air­lines cargo ser­vice in mid-Oc­to­ber. …

Andy Hayashi, man­ager of Mr. Pa­paya Co-op, said, “We’re op­ti­mistic, but we also re­al­ize we need more pro­mo­tion of pa­paya on the main­land.”

More than 600,000 pounds of pa­paya is sent to the main­land each month from the Big Is­land and Ge­orge Aoki, co­op­er­a­tive ex­ten­sion ser­vice agent, es­ti­mated that some 7 mil­lion to 8 mil­lion pounds of pa­paya will be ex­ported this com­ing year.

This, how­ever, is far be­low the more than 14 mil­lion pounds pre­dicted by L.E. Perry, United Pa­cific-Ori­ent man­ager, in Oc­to­ber. He said that by De­cem­ber, each of United’s four weekly cargo flights would be car­ry­ing 100,000 pounds of pa­paya.

This would in­di­cate an al­most im­me­di­ate boom within the in­dus­try of nearly 50 per­cent on main­land de­liv­er­ies.

Hayashi and Aoki were quick to point out the ca­pa­bil­ity of pro­duc­ers in Hawaii to reach the to­tal at this time is im­pos­si­ble. At the same time, how­ever, the in­dus­try has ben­e­fited eco­nom­i­cally from di­rect flights in the elim­i­na­tion of the Honolulu trans­fer and trans-ship­ment costs, be­tween 2 to 3 cents per pound, ac­cord­ing to Hayashi. …

Oc­to­ber ship­ping to­tals, re­ported by Stan­ley Ran­dolph, United Air­lines’ Hilo man­ager, were 388,140 pounds out­go­ing and 230,830 pounds in­com­ing.
