Honolulu International Airport runway to temporarily close for maintenance

Posted on Feb 16, 2016 in Airports News, Main, News

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) will temporarily close Runway 8R-26L (Reef Runway) for runway maintenance work at the Honolulu International Airport for four nights this week. During the closure, flights will be redirected to other operational runways which will alter their flight paths. This may increase air traffic noise over the Ewa Plains and Downtown Honolulu communities during the closure hours.

Runway maintenance will occur Wednesday night, Feb. 17, through Saturday night, Feb. 20, from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., nightly. Construction is weather permitting.

The HDOT appreciates residents’ patience and understanding as we work to improve the condition of the Honolulu International Airport’s runways.
