Ground Transportation

There are a number of ways to get to and from Kona International Airport. The airport is located 20 miles from the Hilton Waikoloa Village.

Taxi service is provided by various independent companies curbside fronting baggage claim areas A and B. See the taxi dispatchers for service. Estimated fare to the Hilton Waikoloa Village (one-way) is $50.

Note: Kona Airport is NOT your typical airport. There are NO jet bridges from the airplane to the airport — all passengers must walk down mobile stairs (so your carry-on should be light enough for you to carry down stairs). It is also mostly an outdoor airport with limited roofing and walls (should it be raining, prepare to get wet while at airport). Also for your return trip, please note that there are very limited stores and dining at the airport.

When exiting the airport there are not many cabs lined up per a usual airport. It is highly suggested to make advanced ground transportation arrangements, such as SpeediShuttle (which has a desk located at the Hilton Waikoloa Village for your return to the airport).
