“The Rise of Kahului Airport” Topic of Business Mixer
“The Rise of Kahului Airport” will be the topic of an upcoming business mixer hosted by the Maui Filipino Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. at Tante’s Island Cuisine, 100 West Kaʻahumanu Avenue, Kahului.
Kahului Airport Manager Marvin Moniz will be the guest speaker at the event which is open to all club members at $20 per person and the general public (non-members) at $30 per person. Pūpū will be served.
Moniz will discuss the rise of the Kahului Airport structures and provide an update on travel to and from Maui.
The Kahului Airport Car Rental Facility project began April 2016 and is 35% complete. The project is slated for completion in 2020.
Project construction costs for OGG is $350 million. These costs are funded by the Customer Facility Charge that is assessed every time a car is rented on airport property, not taxpayer money. Transportation officials say the projects have created hundreds of onsite construction jobs.
The consolidated rental car facility will house the rental car companies in one central location on airport property to provide better service and efficiency for customers. The multi-level structure will include more than 4,400 parking stalls at each airport, a Quick-Turn-Around area with fuel and car wash facilities, ready and return rental car spaces, office space and customer service counters. In addition, the use of a tram system at OGG is aimed at reducing roadway congestion and the carbon foot print at the airport.
The upcoming event is sponsored by the Maui Federal Credit Union and Western Union. For more information about the Filipino Chamber of Commerce, call Sharon Zalsos at (808) 359-1616.
