About Sacramento International Airport
Sacramento International Airport is the main gateway to the California State Capitol. SMF is popular for both business and tourism, due to its proximity to attractions such as Lake Tahoe, Yosemite National Park, Old Sacramento State Historic Park, Wine Country, and more! The airport features two runways and two terminals. The opening of the east runway was celebrated by landing the legendary Concorde jet. Every year since 2016, Southwest Airlines has added new nonstop routes to their service from Sacramento, including several to Hawaii before this newest route!
About Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keāhole
Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keāhole serves the western islands of Hawaii, especially the town of Kailua-Kona. The airport boasts an 11,000-foot runway, much of it built on a lava flow. Crews used over 3 million pounds of dynamite to flatten the lava tube for runway construction! It is also the only major airport in Hawaii with only one runway, although it is the second-longest runway in Hawaii.
