Reef Runway maintenance alters air traffic patterns

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Oct 28, 2013

~~<p><strong>Question</strong>: From our condo, I can see the Reef Runway, which has been closed for a long time. I have tried to find out online what they are doing but can&rsquo;t find anything. We just went to the mainland and took off on another runway. All the big planes are taking off over the city right now. Sometimes they work in the daytime but you can see all the lights at night. Did I miss the announcement about it or was nothing announced?</p>
<p><strong>Answer</strong>: There was a short announcement by the state Department of Transportation on Sept. 6 that aircraft traffic over the Honolulu and Kalihi areas would increase because flight patterns have to be altered during airfield maintenance work at Honolulu Airport.</p>
