Direct to Kahului (Favorite)
In 1971 my mom and Dad (Ev and Bud) traveled from Honolulu to Kahului. Their trip actually started in San Diego.
Times change and so do the aircraft (don't miss the propellers) but one thing stays the same: Flying into Kahului feels like your are landing in paradise.
The airport terminal has plenty of open air from the outside and ceiling fans. You literally FEEL that you have arrived!
Allow me to draw your attention to the doors. What's that you say? You don't see any doors? Funny, now that you mention it, neither do I!
If that doesn't tell you how amazing the weather is on Maui, I don't know what will.
When pulling up to check-in at Kahului Airport (OGG) the entire front face of the building is OPEN AIR! It was one of those odd realizations that stuck in my memory as I left my favorite place on the planet for the first time. It tied up my entire trip with a metaphorical bow.
Whether you arrange your flights to Maui through Honolulu or direct to Kahului, getting them set up is easy. Cheap airfares are out there if you look and these discount airfares are actually more abundant than you'd think.
