Aloha From Kona!
The western coast of the Big Island is known as the “Kona Side”, and Kailua-Kona is the lively center of it all. This historic seaside town sits in the middle of the Kona coast, a few miles south of the Kona International Airport (KOA). Not too long ago Kailua was a sleepy fishing village. Now, because of its central location and great weather it has transformed into a lively town that is the activity capital of the Big Island. It is the city on the Big Island that is best equipped for adventure seekers and people looking for a relaxing Hawaiian vacation!
Kona International Airport at Keahole (KOA/PHKO) occupies 3,450 acres of land about seven miles northwest of Kailua-Kona on the island of Hawaii at an elevation of 47 feet. The airport accommodates domestic overseas, international, interisland, commuter/air taxi, and general aviation activities.
Kona Airport handled 4,058,749 passengers in 2019. Sadly, in 2020, due to the coronavirus crisis, the Airport only handled 1,334,916 passengers. This year the airport is on track to hit 3,000,000 passengers.
