Flights to Hawaii International

Ideally all flights to Hawaii would run on a regular timetable, unfortunately with the skies having too accommodate numerous airlines and multiple flights, schedules very rarely follow a set pattern. The majority of major airlines have daily flights to the four largest islands Oahu, Maui (Kahului), Kauai (Lihue) and the Big Island (Kona). Hawaiian Airlines are inter island carriers, and run frequent flights between all four islands as well as to the two smaller islands i.e. Molokai and Lanai.

Flights to Hawaii Times and Schedules

Generally speaking, passengers leaving from the west coast of the US should expect an air trip to take about 5 hours, during which over 2000 miles are covered. Flights from the mainland are fairly relaxed since Hawaii is a State of the US, and because of this US citizens require no passports or any sort of vaccination. That said, passengers are not allowed to bring in any sort of fruit, vegetable or food stuff which has been produced from a living creature to do so is illegal.
