1 Kahului Airport Road, Kahului, HI 96732-2395 | (808) 872-3830)

Kahului Airport has two terminals--a main terminal and a commuter terminal. Upon arriving on Maui at Kahului International Airport's main terminal (OGG), come on down the escalator to Baggage Claim. This is a real, island setting with tropical breezes wafting through. There is plenty of seating around planters and a Starbucks - great for the 20-30 minute wait you may have when flying in from outside the Hawaiian islands.

Traveler Information, Shuttles and Cabs have Kiosks here. Rental Car Kiosks are outside at the west end of the baggage area (on your left when facing turnstiles). Bathrooms are remodeled.

Baggage turnstiles 1-2 on the west side of the area are for "local flights" on Hawaiian Air. Bags here come very quickly. IF you had a long wait in Honolulu when changing plans - it's possible your bags arrived before you so look around the turnstile along the wall. Should you be missing a bag, the various airlines have helpful folks available for filing a claim. Check the perimeter of the area near the exits.

Phase two of the new access road to the airport has been completed. You can now avoid shopping traffic on Dairy Road and take the new bypass. Our Map shows the Primary route option. You can see other options too.

Coming from Kihei/Wailea/Makena (311) or Maalaea/Lahaina/Kaanapali-Kapalua (380) the new airport road begins where Dairy Road now turns left near the intersection that accesses WalMart & Home Depot, just past King's Cathedral (Big blue roof) at the corner of Dairy Rd & Puunene Ave. It continues on behind Maui Marketplace and the other stores and gas stations of Dairy Road.

From the Airport, Follow the signs to the ACCESS ROAD - most of you will turn left onto Aalele St just past the rental car area and continue on pretty much straight ahead to the new road. The New rental car center is not yet ready so getting to the Access road from your rental car pick up is the same as accessing from the airport.

If you want to stop at Whole Foods don't take the left on Aalele, just keep right thru the light and join Hana Hwy to Maui Mall. Bearing left at that light will put you on Dairy Road and a hard left at the light will also give you access to CostCo.

If you want to stop at CostCo on the way to your condo you can also do that by taking that left on Aalele and keeping Right on Aalele instead of straight for the Access Road. Turn right onto 36A at the stop sign. First Costco entrance on Left is to gas station, next is for the main building.

For those heading to Hana or Up Country, you have two options. Take the new access road to the Hana/ Hwy turn off or follow the signs to the left shortly after getting on the access road to wander thru the sugar cane fields near the heliport.

Your GPS may not have this new road yet so keep your eyes open and take a deep breath and relax - it's Maui!

Rental Cars on Maui can be picked up at the airport (or near by in Kahului), at some hotels, at rental car offices in Kihei or West Maui. When renting at the airport you will pay an extra airport facility fee. All rental cars on Maui are now subject to a $3.00 per day Highway Surcharge fee. Have a late arrival? Save those airport facility taxes, take a cab or shuttle to your condo or hotel and pick up the car locally. Direct Rental Network has a relationship with Avis Car Rentals. Use the Avis link in this section for great discounts from Avis. We have found this company to be reliable. Still, as in any resort area, it is best to check several companies each time you book as rates change daily.
