    Kahului Airport parking

    Kahului Airport’s range of parking facilities includes options for occasional or one-time users and frequent fliers, as well as parking for drivers coming to the airport to pick up or drop off passengers. You can pay for parking at OGG with cash or by credit card, but bear in mind that the machines do not dispense change.

    Short- and mid-term parking

    The OGG Commuter Terminal and Heliport parking areas are available for both short- and mid-term use. Reservations are not possible and you must pay for your stay at the ticket machines before entering either parking lot.

    You must display your ticket clearly in your windshield in order to avoid a fine. Your first 15 minutes of parking in these areas are free of charge, making the Commuter Terminal and Heliport parking areas ideal for dropping off passengers. After 15 minutes, you will incur charges at different rates up to six hours, with a maximum daily fee in place to prevent you from paying over the odds for extended stays.

    Monthly parking

    If you’re a frequent flier at Kahului Airport or if you need a one-off long-term parking deal, you could save money by paying for parking by the month. The fee is set and payable from the 22nd of each month.

    Electric vehicle parking

    Kahului Airport has a number of parking bays reserved exclusively for use by electric vehicles. If your vehicle has the correct license plates (confirming their electric status), it is exempt from parking charges at Kahului Airport.

    Kahului Airport (OGG) is the largest airport on the island of Maui, the second-busiest flight hub in the state of Hawaii and the 51st-busiest in the USA. It handles more than three million passengers every year, with more than 10 airlines offering flights to and from locations in Hawaii, other American states and selected cities in Canada.

    As OGG is a small, government-run airport, its staff members are also responsible for managing Hana and Kapalua-West Maui Airport, Lanai Airport on the island of Lanai and the Molokai and Kalaupapa Airports on the island of Molokai.

    Location of Kahului Airport

    OGG is located three miles (4.8 kilometers) to the east of Kahului on the island of Maui and its site covers 1,391 acres (563 hectares) of land. The airport sits very close to the land bridge connecting the West Maui Mountain Range and Haleakala (the East Maui volcano).

    With links to the Honoapiilani Highway, Kuihelani Highway and Hana Highway, OGG is easy to reach by road and allows quick routes to a number of popular resorts in the area. Semi-regular public bus services and an airport shuttle service are also available from stops in and around the local area; the Upcountry and Haiku Islander routes stop at the airport.

    History of Kahului Airport

    Following the modernization of a former wartime US naval airbase at a cost of $150,000, Kahului Airport officially began inter-island passenger and cargo operations on June 24 1952.

    Since its early days, OGG has seen a great deal of expansion. The airport’s current form began to take shape between 1998 and 2001, when the Hawaii State Legislature passed bills to allow the airport’s redevelopment. This saw the lengthening of runways, the construction of new access roads and the expansion of the terminal building.

    A bill passed in 2007 (Act 213, SLH 2007) permitted the addition of an extra gate, a conference room, family bathrooms, extra parking spaces and a new terminal roof. Another bill (Act 158, SLH 2008) came into force a year later that facilitated various improvements of the airport’s infrastructure. These changes included the rebuilding of runways and the addition of parking spaces, as well as the modernization of the airport’s security systems.

    While OGG started out as a small, inter-island facility, it now serves more than three million passengers every year.

    If you’re hungry or fancy a drink, you have a choice of two bar-and-grill restaurants offering menus stacked with locally sourced and classic American dishes, as well as a range of refreshing soft and alcoholic drinks.
