Near Term Projects

Diamond Head Commuter Terminal

Back to Top

  

The new Diamond Head Commuter Terminal will be located east of the existing Diamond Head Concourse.  It would be connected to the existing Overseas Terminal by an overhead walkway to the second floor of the Diamond Head Concourse.  This new commuter terminal would have 6 departure gates and 14 aircraft parking positions, plus an adjacent passenger parking lot.  The existing roadways on the eastern side of the airport would be reconfigured and improved for convenient access to the new terminal and parking lot.

Aloha Air Cargo Facility

Back to Top

The new Aloha Air Cargo (AAC) facility will consolidate AAC's existing cargo operations, aircraft maintenance, loading docks, support offices, and customer service operations into an integrated facility on the west side of the airport near the end of Elliott Street and Hale Kinai Road. AAC would utilize and existing aircraft parking apron north of Taxiway A for cargo aircraft parking.

Relocating AAC’s operations allows for the demolition of their existing facilities to make room for the widening of Taxilanes G & L to accommodate larger planes at the Interisland Terminal and the new Mauka Concourse.

Hawaiian Airlines Cargo/Maintenance Facility

Back to Top

 

A new Hawaiian Airlines (HA) Cargo/Maintenance Facility will also be constructed along Elliott Street.  The new facility will consolidate HA’s existing cargo operations, aircraft maintenance, loading docks, support offices, and customer service operations into an integrated facility.

Relocating HA’s operations allows for the demolition of their existing facilities to make room for the widening of Taxilanes G & L to accommodate larger planes at the Interisland Terminal and the new Mauka Concourse.

New Employee Parking Lot

Back to Top

A new employee parking lot will be built between the new Aloha Air Cargo facility and the Hawaiian Airlines Cargo/Maintenance facility to replace the existing employee parking lot that is within the footprint of these two new facilities.

Consolidated Rental Car Facility (CONRAC)

Back to Top

The new Consolidated Rental Car Facility (CONRAC) will consolidate all rental car companies servicing the Airport, including all on-Airport and off-Airport companies.  It will be located east of the existing Overseas Terminal (OST) parking garage.  The CONRAC will consist of five stories, which includes ready return areas, quick turnaround areas, and customer service areas.

The CONRAC will include a total of approximately 2,250 parking stalls compared to an existing total of 895 parking stalls.

A common busing operation (consolidating all rental car busing operations) will accommodate passengers to/from the various areas of the airport to/from the CONRAC.

New Mauka Concourse

Back to Top

  

The new Mauka Concourse addresses the need for additional gate capacity at HNL during the peak hours and the need for new gates capable of handling larger widebody aircraft such as the Airbus A-350. It will be the first major concourse expansion at Honolulu International Airport in almost 20 years.

The L-shaped concourse will be connected to the Interisland Terminal and will include new aircraft gates, passenger holdrooms, security screening lanes, jet bridges, and public amenities, such as concessions, restrooms, and information kiosks. Its size would accommodate today’s peak traffic in an efficient use of the limited space at HNL. 
 
The Mauka Concourse will provide 6 new gatehouses, each with 2 passenger loading bridges, with an overall capability of accommodating 6 widebody aircraft parking positions or 11 narrowbody aircraft parking positions.
 

Taxiway G & L Widening

Back to Top

Taxilanes G & L, located on the west side of the airport, will be widened to meet FAA design standards to accommodate the larger and heavier aircraft using the new Mauka Concourse.

The widened taxilanes will allow all aircraft using the Interisland Terminal and the new Mauka Concourse to power-in/power-out, reducing the existing queuing of aircraft, reducing aircraft taxi times, and improving airport efficiency.
