Limited Parking at Hawaiʻiʻs Airports During Labor Day Weekend
The Hawaiʻi Department of Transportation (HDOT) Airports Division said parking will be limited at the five main airports across the state during the Labor Day weekend. This comes from an anticipated increase in travelers and less available parking spaces.
HDOT said travelers at Kahului Airport should be aware of construction on the new Consolidated Rent-A-Car facility that has temporarily reduced the amount of public parking stalls. HDOT has designated separate employee parking to provide additional stalls for the public.
More than 600 stalls will not be available at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) due to two improvement projects, including construction of the Mauka Concourse which closed Lot B. More information on the Mauka Concourse project can be found online.
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 from Aug. 20 through Nov. 16, 2018. More information on the solar panel installation can be found online.
Parking limitations are expected to ease after Labor Day. HDOT is encouraging travelers to get dropped off at the airport, carpool, or schedule another method of transportation.
HDOT is advising travelers who plan to use the airport’s public parking garages 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 period at neighbor island airports is $15.
HDOT is also encouraging drivers to write down the lot they parked in as well as the level and location of the vehicle or photograph the vehicle’s location to use as reference upon return. HDOT said drivers should hide the parking ticket stub in a safe place and avoid leaving it on the dashboard.
