Maui International Airport (OGG) Hawaii
Maui Airport also known as Kahului Airport is the biggest and only international airport of the three other airports on Maui Island. Maui Airport is a regional airport of Hawaii and is located on the northern edge of the land bridge between Haleakala and the West Maui mountain range on the island of Maui. The airport is located three miles east of the town of Kahului and occupies 1391 acres of land.
The history of Maui Airport dates back to 1927 when the Territorial Legislature allocated $15,000 to acquire land for the purchase of an airport site on Maui. The site picked was at Maalaea and the property was acquired from a Hawaiian sugar company. In 1947 the HAC planned to move all operations from Puunene airport to Maui Airport since it was considered more reliable when it came to undertaking commercial airline operations. After serious negotiations and major improvements on Maui Airport, full commercial airline operations started in June 1952.
Maui Airport has grown from humble beginnings to become the second busiest airport in the Hawaiian state. This is especially so during the summer when tourists come to experience the scenery and beautiful weather of Hawaii.
The airport is equipped with the newest terminal facilities and has two intersecting runways. Access to the passenger terminals, cargo, commuter/air taxi, scenic tour operators and general aviation airport facilities is made convenient via a road network connecting to the Hana Highways. Maui Airport is served by many major and minor airlines and serves an average of 7000 passengers per day.
There are many facilities offered at Maui Airport such as airline lounges, ATM and Banking services, medical services, Wi-Fi access, curbside check-in, food and beverage concessions, shops and a newsstand.
There are various options to get you from the airport to your destination. Stepping out of the airport, a car rental area is conveniently located on the right. The bus shuttle is also a cheap alternative to renting and it offers transportation to and from the airport to all the main resorts. Taxi services are also available at affordable prices, depending on the distance and season.
