The primary airport on Maui, the Kahului Airport
(OGG) is Maui's main connection to the US Mainland, and neighbor islands. In 2011, Kahului Airport
received 969,000 passengers from Honolulu International Airport
, far and away the most passengers from connecting cities; Los Angeles, CA was a distant second, though 419,000 passengers came into Maui from LA. In fact, the Honolulu-Kahului corridor is the 13th busiest air route in the US.
Though inter-island travel is the most common form of visitor arrival, Kahului Airport
has many connections to the US Mainland and Canada. Oakland, Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, Vancouver, and Chicago (seasonal) all fly direct to Kahului, making your trip to Maui easier than ever.
Maui's primary airport was originally in Puunene, but in 1947 the HAC moved operations to Kahului, the site of the former Naval Air Station. Over the years, many renovations and upgrades have been made to the airport, including new control towers, terminals, runways, hangars, and restaurants.
