For a third day this week, Maui County had no trans-Pacific flights (domestic flights) from the mainland on Saturday. Mayor Victorino had earlier indicated that out-of-state flights would be reduced to four times per week.

Transportation officials say that currently, only Delta Airlines is flying from Los Angeles to Kahului-Maui, Kona-Hawaiʻi and Līhuʻe-Kauaʻi 3 to 4 times a week.

On Saturday, April 25, 542 people arrived in Hawaiʻi including 135 visitors and 200 residents.

During this same time last year, nearly 30,000 passengers arrived in Hawaiʻi daily, including residents and visitors.


The state’s mandatory 14-day self-quarantine started on March 26th for all passengers arriving in Hawaiʻi from out of state. The quarantine order was expanded on April 1st to include interisland travelers.


The table above does not include interisland travel.
