Construction on the Mauka Concourse and demolition of the former Commuter Terminal began June 1, 2018. For pictures of the ongoing construction click here.
The new $220 million Mauka Concourse will be located on the Ewa side of the airport and will connect with Terminal 1 (the former Interisland Terminal). The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certified facility will accommodate eleven narrow body aircraft or six wide body aircraft. The second level departure area will include a new air-conditioned Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoint with six lanes to screen passengers faster and reduce the amount of time spent in security lines.
