Flights From Honolulu 

Honolulu International Airport (HNL) welcomes most visitors to the Hawaiian islands. Serving more than 21 million passengers annually, it’s by far the largest airport in Hawaii. HNL is the primary hub for Hawaiian Airlines and also an important hub for Asia Pacific Airlines, Island Air, and Mokulele Airlines. 

Direct flights from Honolulu to both the West and East coast of the US mainland are available. The Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle routes are by far the most popular, accounting for half the traffic between HNL and the mainland. Because of that volume, they may be your best bet for cheap flights from Honolulu, especially during the off season.

HNL is made up of three terminal buildings, which are connected by a fleet of “Wiki Wiki” buses (named after the Hawaiian word for “quick”). The terminals are divided and named by function, including the Main Overseas Terminal, the Interisland Terminal, and the Commuter Terminal.
