Kona at Keahole KOA Airport Overview

Kona International Airport KOA serves the island of Hawaii, also referred to as the 'Big Island' as it is the largest island of the Hawaiian Chain, and known for its active volcanoes, scenic coastline and great golf courses. It provides services to the U.S. mainland, to international destinations, and  serves interisland, commuter /air taxi and general aviation.

KOA Airport is located in the town of Keahole, on the island's west side, about seven miles northwest of Kailua-Kona, and is accessible via the access roadway extending from Queen Kaahumanu Highway.

With a very long runway, and nearly 3 million passengers annually, Kona International Airport is served by a number of domestic and foreign airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.

The passenger terminal at Kona International is divided into North & South Terminals, and is accessible via the Kupipi Street, a one-way loop enclosing public parking and rental car check-in facilities. In the center of the terminal complex is the Onizuka Memorial.  
Projects completed by year-end 2013:  Air-conditioned enclosures for security checkpoints, resurfacing of parking lots and adding 100 parking spaces, terminal exterior painting, replacement of skylight at restaurant buildings,  and replacing/ upgrading baggage carousel at South Terminal. 

Present and future Airport Developments:  Under the the Kona Terminal Modernization Program, some of the projects in the terminal were already completed, while ongoing projects do not involve the terminals. Long-term projects include consolidating checkpoint to a central location - connecting it to North & South Terminals;  install air-conditioning in hold rooms & new food court; expand terminal; add up to 5 new gates.
