Hawaii transportation officials warned travelers today that there will be limited parking at the five main airports across the state during Veterans Day weekend due to an anticipated increase in airline passengers as well as several construction projects.
Travelers are encouraged to carpool, get dropped off, or schedule another method of transportation to the airport.
The following is a rundown of parking availability at Hawaii’s airports this weekend:
>>Lihue Airport (LIH) has a total of 575 public parking stalls, most of which are anticipated to be occupied over the weekend as passengers travel to and from Oahu for the Bruno Mars concerts.
>> At the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL), the total number of available parking stalls are down by 600 due to the construction of the new Mauka Concourse, which closed Lot B. Parking on the roof level of the Terminal 1 (formerly the Interisland Terminal) garage at HNL is closed for the installation of a new carport and more than 4,200 solar panels.
>> Travelers at Kahului Airport (OGG) should be aware of construction activities on the new Consolidated Rent-A-Car (Conrac) facility that temporarily reduced the number of available public parking stalls.
Travelers using airport parking garages are advised to arrive early and allow for additional walking time to the ticket lobbies, as some are farther from the main terminal than others. The maximum parking rate for a 24-hour period at HNL is $18, and $15 at neighbor island airports.
Drivers are encouraged to write down the lot they are parked in and the level and location of the vehicle or use their phone to photograph the vehicle’s location for reference upon return. Drivers should also keep the parking ticket stub in a safe place, out of sight, rather than on the car’s dashboard.
