Introduction to Kahului Airport

General information and facts about the Kahului International Airport (OGG) on the island of Maui in Hawaii.

Kahului Airport (OGG) is the second busiest airport in the State of Hawaii. It 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 occupies1,391 acres of land, and is 2 miles east of the city of Kahului along the Pacific Ocean.

The airport is owned and operated by the State of Hawaii, Department of Transportation, Airports Division.

The airport provides air carrier facilities for domestic overseas and interisland commercial service. The airport also provides commuter/air taxi and general aviation operations, including helicopter operations in separate locations.

Nearly six million passengers used Kahului Airport in 1999, with more than 1.8 million arriving or departing on direct flights from the Mainland. OGG was the 55th busiest airport in the United States in 1998, according to the U.S. DOT, and the Honolulu-Kahului city pair is the most traveled pair in the U.S.

The airport is served by national, interisland, charter, scenic air tour, general aviation, commuter and cargo airlines.

Kahului averages more than 500 aircraft operations (landings and take-offs) daily, including 227 air carrier and 254 air taxi operations.

Kahului has two major runways of 7,000-feet and 5,000-feet.

To handle the number of direct flights to Maui, a new 267,000-foot terminal building was opened in 1990. Additional hold rooms and a new baggage claim area opened in 1993. With the decline in tourism in the late 1990s, the department abandoned plans to lengthen the main runway.
