Welcome to KOA
Kona International Airport (KOA) is owned and operated by the State of Hawaii, Department of Transportation Airports Division. The airport is managed by a staff of professionals who are well trained and dedicated to serving the traveling needs of Hawaii residents and visitors. We are assisted by our airline partners, concessionaires, tenants and employees who embrace our vision and share their Aloha with the more than three million passengers who pass through our gates each year.
We have a number of challenges in the coming years to modernize our aging facilities and meet the challenges of air travel in the 21st Century. With our professional and hard working staff we will meet those challenges head on and continue the great legacy of our early aviators who made Hawaii the Crossroads of the Pacific.
