Traveling to Kona

Kona is the westernmost district on the Big Island of Hawaii and the shortened name for the city of Kailua-Kona. The Kona International Airport at Keahole located at 73-200 Kupipi St. services residents and visitors of the city looking for cheap flights to Kona. Airlines operating out of Kona include Air Canada, Delta Airlines, American Airlines and US Airways, among others. The airport is about seven miles from Kailua and still maintains an open-air design that takes full advantage of the beautiful Hawaii weather.

The Weather in Kona

The weather in Kona is tropical with warm temperatures lasting throughout the year.
