Hawaii Inter Island Flights

Holiday makers seldom remain on one island during their Hawaiian vacation. The quickest way to island hop is by using the regular Hawaii inter island flights that run between the islands. Like the islands themselves, Hawaii air travel is very relaxed. Frequent flyers have found that most of the time reservations are not necessary; people simply just turn up at the airport! Tickets are even available from 7 Eleven stores and also from automatic dispensing machines.

Broadening Your Vacation

All the islands are only separated by a few miles and flights seldom take much more than half an hour. Without a doubt the most established inter island airline is Hawaiian Airlines with its fleet of Boeings. The service is a daily one with flights running to all 6 islands – Lanai, Molokai, Maui, Kauai, Oahu and the Big Island.

On average a plane leaves every half an hour to and from the following destinations:

Honolulu Airport on the island of Oahu and Lihue and Princeville Airports on Kauai
Kahului and Kapalua Airports on Maui and Hilo and Keahole Airports on the Big Island. Unfortunately there is no direct flight from Kauai to the Big Island and very few between Kauai and Maui unfortunately all flights have to go via Honolulu and endure a brief stop over.

Inter island flights are fairly irregular between the islands of Lanai and Molokai. Visitors looking for a more regular service might want to check out the ferries that run between Maui and Molokai and Maui and Lanai. Find out more information on the Lanai Ferry and the Molokai Ferry.

Unlimited Island Hopping

Some airlines have introduced an “air pass” system which gives passengers unlimited travel for a set period of time. What could be more perfect for those moving back and for the between islands? With such a pass travelers can make a number of reservations to any destination covered by the airline. Airlines that currently run such a program include Aloha Airlines and Island Air. The only draw back using the air pass is that passengers cannot gain of use frequent flyer miles.
