Traveling between the Hawaiian Islands is relatively quick and easy. There are dozens of daily flights connecting the six major islands. Travel between Honolulu’s interisland terminal on Oahu and Maui, Kauai as well as both Kona and Hilo on the Big Island are the most frequent services with departures every hour or so. Flights start early in the morning and continue through mid-evening. Jet service is available to most destinations.
There are also smaller planes connecting to the islands of Lanai, Molokai and even West Maui’s Kapalua Airport which offers convenient access to Kaanapali, the island’s largest resort area. Note that flights to these smaller airports are daily but much less frequent.
You can also travel directly between the neighbor islands, sometimes with a brief stop at another on the way.
Mokulele Airlines has the newest fleet of aircrafts in the state of Hawai’i and operates over 100 daily flights from 8 airports including: Kona International Airport, and Waimea airport on the Big Island, Kapalua, Kahului and Hana airports on Maui, and Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (Honolulu International Airport) on Oahu, and Ho’olehua & Kalaupapa airports on Moloka’i. Book your flight with Hawaii’s favorite island hopper.
