Airport Car Rental
Kona International Airport is one of two airports on the island of Hawai’i (the Big Island). Located on the western side of the island, it is much busier than Hilo Airport on the eastern side. The Big Island is a great island to spend some of your vacations on and with connections to both other Hawaiian islands and cities on the mainland of the United States, Kona Airport makes getting to it very easy.
The largest island of the group is also the most southerly too. Given its size, there is, of course, much to explore. The Kailua-Kona serves as a great base with all of the amenities of a resort destination available. The real adventure, however, lies in the rural parts of the island. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park hosts the island’s most famous landscape with the Crater Rim and Chain of Craters Roads. Visitors shouldn’t miss the Green Sand Beach even though a short hike is required to reach it. The most southerly point of any U.S. state is also nearby the beach and there is a spot where many dive off the cliffs there which is great for watching if you aren’t brave enough to take the risk.

Services and facilities
Being a smaller airport, there is not as large of a selection of dining and shopping as there would be in larger airports. Each terminal has newsstands and gift shops. A snack shop can be found in the center between the terminals. Terminal 1 has the Laniakae Cafe and Terminal 2 has the Laniakae Resturant.
There are ATMs but there is no currency exchange available at the airport. Currency can be exchanged if transiting through the Honolulu Airport, but using an ATM or paying with your card most often provide better rates.
Visitor Information desks are located throughout the airport and provide visitors with all of the information they need regarding travel and accommodation.
