One of Maui’s newspapers MauiNow reports that the Department of Transportation will begin an $18 million resurfacing project on Kahului Airport’s main runway. The project will be worked on from 12am-8am 6 days a week. Flights will temporarily be redirected to another runway.
In other exciting news, Mauinow also reports that there are plans underway for a new consolidated rental car facility at Kahului Airport. I am not sure when that project is due to start.
Maui’s Kahului Airport (OGG) is the second-busiest airport in the Hawaiian Islands (after Honolulu HNL on Oahu). This is the airport that you fly into when arriving from the mainland. Other (smaller) airports on Maui which are used for inter-island flights only are Kapalua Airport (JHM) in West Maui and Hana Airport (HNM).
