Kauai Lihue LIH Airport Overview
The small Airport is within walking distance (1.5 miles) east of the city of Lihue, on Kauai's southeast coast, and can be accessed via Ahukini Road 570, which extends from Kapule Hwy. 51.
With two runways, and approaching 3 million passengers a year, Lihue Airport is served by major airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all parts of the globe.
The passenger terminal at Lihue Airport is accessed by a one-way loop roadway branching off Ahukini Road and encircling a public parking lot.
Present and future Airport developments: While many improvements were completed by 2013, work on the air conditioning system, replacement & upgrade of security access control, and work on non-terminal related projects were done in early 2014.
Thereafter, the ticket lobby is to be upgraded, a Concolidated Rental Car Facility (CONRAC) is to be built, and 450 parking spaces added, as well as a new lane on the Airport Loop Road.
Furthermore, Runway exension work by 855 feet is tentatively scheduled for completion by late 2016.
