HDOT warns travelers of limited parking at Hawaiian airports during the holiday season

The number of travelers could be approaching pre-pandemic counts

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) airport division is warning travelers about limited parking at the five major airports across the state during the holiday season due to an expected increase in air passengers.

All five major Hawaiian airports, Honolulu (HNL), Kahului (OGG), Kona (KOA), Hilo (ITO) and Lihue (LIH), are expected to be busy.

Last month during the Thanksgiving holiday season, two of the three parking garages at HNL were almost full between Thursday and Saturday. A certain relief is in sight at HNL, as 724 parking spaces will be returned as public parking spaces at the beginning of next year.

HDOT urges anyone traveling this season to consider being dropped off by family, friends, a taxi, or rideshare.

When using the airport’s public parking garages, travelers are advised to arrive early and allow additional walking time to the ticket lobbies, as some parking spaces are further from the main terminal than others. The maximum parking fee for a 24-hour period at HNL is USD 18. The maximum parking fee for 24-hour parking at the airports on the neighboring islands is USD 15.
