Limited Parking at Hawai‘i Airports During Veterans Day Weekend
Travelers in Hawaiʻi are being alerted of limited parking available at the state’s five main airports during the Veterans Day weekend. This is due in large part to an anticipated increase in airline passenger or a reduction in available parking stalls.
Travelers at Kahului Airport should be aware of construction activities on the new Consolidated Rent-A-Car or “Conrac” facility. This has temporarily reduced the amount of available public parking stalls. To provide additional parking for the public, HDOT has created separate employee parking.
Transportation officials say that current capacity for public parking at Kahului Airport is 1,200.
Travelers are encouraged to get dropped off at the airport, carpool, or schedule another method of transportation.
At Līhuʻe Airport on Kauaʻi, there are a total of 575 public parking stalls, most of which are anticipated to be occupied over the weekend. In speaking with passengers, many are traveling to Oʻahu for the Bruno Mars concerts.
Two improvement projects at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport have reduced the total number of available parking stalls by more than 600. The projects include the construction of the Mauka Concourse which closed Lot B.
Parking on the roof level of the Terminal 1 (formerly the Interisland Terminal) garage at HNL is closed for the installation of a new carport and more than 4,200 solar panels. The roof level parking is anticipated to reopen by the Thanksgiving holiday.
If utilizing the airport’s public parking garages, travelers are advised to arrive early and allow for additional walking time to the ticket lobbies, as some lots are farther from the main terminal than others. The maximum parking rate for a 24-hour period at HNL is $18. The maximum parking rate for a 24-hour parking at neighbor island airports is $15.
Drivers are encouraged to write down the lot they are parked in and the level and location of the vehicle or use their phone to photograph the vehicle’s location to use as reference upon return. Drivers should place the parking ticket stub in a safe place that is not visible from the outside of the vehicle. Do not leave it on the car’s dashboard.
