HNL runway closures for construction improvements

Posted on Nov 3, 2023 in Main, News

HONOLULU – The Hawai‘i Department of Transportation (HDOT) alerts residents that various runway improvement projects at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) will divert all arriving and departing aircraft to Runway 8R/26L nightly between 5 p.m. and 7 a.m., Nov. 3 through 10. The increased use of Runway 8R may lead to more flights over the ‘Ewa plain.

While the construction work on the runways is scheduled at night to reduce noise impacts, runway 4L will be out of service from 3 p.m., Nov. 6, through 8 a.m., Nov. 10. Travelers are advised that some interisland flights may be delayed due to the runway closure and to plan accordingly.

Please note all work is weather permitting.

HDOT appreciates the public’s patience while the needed work to ensure the safe operation of HNL is conducted.
