Itinerant to and about hawaii, a first-time visitors briefing - in the open air


Six atypical islands in Hawaii are open to tourism. Most first-timers forecast a trip to one or more than one island have many questions linking to where just to go and how accurately to get there. This briefing will fulfil those questions.

All interisland flights are all through Hawaiian Airlines, Aloha Airlines, or Island Air. Best prices will by and large be all the way through the website or because of your mainland departure company.

Oahu is the hub of Hawaii transportation. Most mainland and Worldwide flights will fly into the Honolulu Worldwide Airport (HNL). Travelers bearing on to a different island may have to deplane and get on an interisland air travel to reach their final destination. The airport is located on the fringes of Honolulu, about a 20 exact drive to Waikiki, and about a 45 exact drive to the North Shore. There are no ferries from Oahu to any other island.

Maui has three airports. The major airport is Kahalui Airport (OGG) which allows aim flights from the West coast of the U. S. mainland. The drive from the airport to Kihei or Wailea is less than half an hour, but can take an hour to Lahaina or Kaanapali. Much more rapidly to the Lahaina area is Kapalua Airport (JHM) but you can only fly there from Honolulu. Hana (HNM) also has an airport if you don't want to drive, but you'll be compelling a very small plane. Check with Calm Wings. You can as usual find day ferries from Maui to Lanai and Molokai.

The Big Island (named Hawaii, but called the Big Island to avoid confusion) has two airports, Hilo Worldwide Airport (ITO), and Keahole Airport (KOA). These two airports are a 2. 5 hour drive from each other. Hilo is bordering to Honokaa, Kapoho, and Volcano. Keahole is in Kailua-Kona which is adjoining to all of Kona, Puako, Kohala, Waikoloa, and Waimea. There are as the crow flies flights from the mainland only to Keahole. There are no ferries from the Big Island to any other island.

Kauai has one airport, Lihue Airport (LIH), in Lihue, and you can find aim flights from the mainland on some carriers. Lihue is about intermediate to the whole lot on the island - but a bit earlier to Poipu than Princeville. There are no ferrys from Kauai to any other island.

Molokai has one airport, Molokai Airport (MKK) in focal Molokai. You will doubtless have to take a small jet in, by and large no superior than a 20 seater. Island Air will fly you in from Honolulu or Kahului. Small business-related boats will ferry you from Maui to Molokai.

Lanai has one airport, Lanai Airport (LNY), near Lanai City. Lanai airport also only accepts small airplanes. Island Air will fly you in from Honolulu. Small advertisement boats will ferry you from Maui to Molokai.

By 2007 Hawaii Super Ferry must be working connecting all the islands and will expectantly develop our existing costly and inefficient interisland go systems. Until then, book your escape online and early.
