Kahului Airport (OGG) is Maui’s main airport. There are two smaller commuter airports as well: Kapalua Airport (JHM) in West Maui and Hana Airport (HNM) in East Maui. Many airlines have non-stop Maui flights to Maui. The others fly into Honolulu International Airport (HNL) on Oahu, then take a 30-minute flight to Maui.
Take a taxi to most resort and hotel destinations, and private airport transfers can also be booked ahead of time. Some hotels in larger resort areas like Kaanapali offer complimentary shuttles to nearby towns and attractions, but airport transportation typically costs extra. Rent a car at Kahului Airport, but reservations should be made in advance for convertibles and jeeps. Other Maui transportation options include tour buses, trolleys and city buses.
Leave the aggressive driver stuff home, follow “Aloha” traffic customs. Drive slowly, let locals pass and don’t tailgate. Maui is home to perhaps the most famous road in Hawaii, the Road to Hana. At one-lane bridges along the Road to Hana. If there is a line waiting on the other side when you approach, let your neighbors cross. Take it easy and enjoy the scenery on its ecologically luxurious, winding road.
