Abercrombie releases $75M for Honolulu Airport improvements

By Associated Press


Gov. Neil Abercrombie has released more than $75.3 million for Hono­lulu Airport projects.

Abercrombie said Thursday the capital improvement projects are necessary for the state’s primary air travel hub to meet growing demand from business, tourist and local travelers. 

The largest amount, $13.2 million, will be to replace 12 passenger loading bridges at the Ewa concourse. Other projects include $11.6 million for the first phase of a consolidated car rental facility and $2.8 million for metal roof replacement and sidewalk improvements at the international terminal. 

The airport covers more than 4,500 acres and is larger than Waikiki. It’s served by 27 international and domestic carriers, three interisland airlines and four commuter airlines. At any given hour there are about 10,000 passengers, employees or visitors at the airport.
