Hawaii Airport

John F. Kennedy International Airport

As an island state, Hawaii is home to two international airports; Honolulu International Airport and Hilo International Airport. The state also has a wide range of domestic airports, providing travellers with easy access to the islands. Located on the island of Oahu, Honolulu International Airport is Hawaii’s main international airport, exceeding 21 million passengers a year and listed as one of the busiest airports in the US. The airport is also hub for a range of airlines including Hawaiian Airlines.

Getting from the Airport

Honolulu International Airport is located 16 kilometres from Waikiki, where most of Honolulu’s major resorts can be found. The airport is serviced by three public buses, two of which travel to downtown Honolulu and Waikiki. A ticket on the bus will cost you $2.50. Alternatively, taxis from the airport to Waikiki cost around $35 to $40 depending on traffic.

Helpful Hints on flying to Hawaii

Before you go to Hawaii

Before you go: As an American state, the same entry requirements apply to Hawaii as if you were flying to the mainland. The USA’s entry requirements are known to change so before you leave, make sure you check with the US embassy. As a general rule, if you are travelling to Hawaii on holiday for less than 90 days, you are eligible for the Visa Waiver Program and do not require a visa. Eligibility for this program is determined by the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation, which you must apply for at least three days before you depart Australia.

Once your entry requirements have been arranged, the next thing to consider is your finances. How much money will you be taking with you on your Hawaii holiday, and how do you plan on accessing it? If you plan on withdrawing cash from an ATM on the islands, let your bank know that you will be in Hawaii otherwise they may freeze your account. Also consider converting some of your money into US dollars before you leave and sign up for a travel money card for safe spending.

Lastly, don’t forget to arrange travel insurance before you fly to Hawaii. While it may be the last thing on your mind when planning your trip, accidents and emergencies can happen and medical bills are particularly expensive in the US. To find what insurance coverage is best for you, talk to your Student Flights consultant.


What to bring to Hawaii

What to bring: With some of the best beaches and resorts in the world, Hawaii holidays are made for swimming. As such, don’t leave home without packing a few swimsuits, as well as sunscreen and a hat. Other than that, you won’t need to pack much else because Hawaii offers great shopping. In fact, Honolulu’s Ala Moana Shopping Centre is one of the largest open-air shopping centres in the world, spanning over 200 stores. If the Aussie dollar is strong, leave a little room in your suitcase for all of your new purchases.

While in Hawaii, you’ll no doubt want to take a few day trips to the famous waterfalls, rainforests and lookout points on the islands. For those trips it’s essential to wear a good pair of comfortable hiking boots, and bring a backpack to carry your belongings in for the day. No matter what the season, rain is common in Hawaii so quick dry clothes are also a good idea to wear on day trips.

If you plan on charging your phone or using electrical equipment while in Hawaii, don’t forget to bring the appropriate power adaptor. Most outlets in the US use two horizontal flat pin plugs, so be sure to pack that particular power adaptor to use on your trip.


During your flight to Hawaii

During your flight: Flights from Sydney to Hawaii usually take around 23 hours or more, depending on the airline and stop over. Most airlines will stop over in either the Middle East or Asia.

Direct flights from Sydney to Honolulu take approximately 9 hours and 50 minutes while other flights may include a stopover in Asia. During the flight, most airlines will serve you food, beverages and offer various in-flight entertainment.

Stay healthy and comfortable on board by drinking plenty of water and performing in-flight exercises. Not moving during your flight can cause circulation problems and discomfort so avoid this by stretching your legs and walking around the plane when possible.
