Central Maui wildfire update for Kahului Airport

Posted on Jul 12, 2019 in Airports News, Main, News

KAHULUI – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) reports the following as of 10:30 a.m., Friday, July 12, 2019.

Operations at Kahului Airport (OGG) are normal, but we continue to ask passengers to contact their airline prior to travelling to the airport as the situation may change.

Earlier this morning several flights that were diverted from Maui yesterday resumed their flights to OGG.

Due to the influx of passengers from yesterday’s cancelled flights, passengers are experiencing delays at OGG. If your airline has confirmed that your flight is departing from OGG today, please arrive three hours prior to your departure time to ensure you can clear security checkpoints.

As the fire is still not contained people should exercise caution and expect possible delays as crews may temporarily shut down roads. Follow County of Maui on Facebook @countyofmaui for the latest information.
