Learn to Live Kona - First you got to get here!

Kona International is one of the easiest airports to navagate.

The airport serves the leeward, or Western Hawaiʻi island, including the town of Kailua-Kona and the resorts of the North Kona and South Kohala districts.

Kona International is the only remaining major airport in the Hawaiian Islands where a mobile ramp is used to plane and deplane passengers. Wheelchair assistance is always avaiable.

The airport has two gate areas: Terminal 1 has gates 1-5 with Baggage Claim A; Terminal 2 has gates 6-10 with Baggage Claim B.

Agriculture Inspection

FYI, All baggage bound from Hawaii to the U. S. Mainland is subject to pre-flight inspection by the U. S. Department of Agriculture. Restrictions on the movement of fruits, plants, live snails, and other items from Hawaii to the Mainland are enforced to prevent the spread of fruit flies and other hazardous plant insects and diseases.

Please report all agricultural items in your possession to the agricultural inspectors. Inspection stations for check-in baggage are located in front of the airline check-in counters while hand carried articles will be inspected at the entrance to the gate area.

Be prepared to open and close your baggage and parcels for x-ray machine inspection.

For further information call the U. S. Department of Agriculture at (808) 877-8757
