Kona Airport Travel Tips

Are you flying to Hawaii Island and specifically Kailua Kona? The Ellison Onizuka International Airport at Keāhole is the primary airport on the Island of Hawaiʻi, located in Kailua-Kona. The airport serves leeward Hawaiʻi island, including the resorts in North Kona and South Kohala.
We provide info about rental cars, parking, baggage, TSA, bathrooms and more, including a bit of history.
For handicapped parking, you can park at curbside and have easy access to the baggage area for drop off.

If you are traveling to Hawaii, especially for the first time, we encourage you to read, consider and "take the pledge" to help respect and protect our island home!
