Flights to Honolulu
Flights to Honolulu are serviced by the Honolulu International Airport (HNL). As well as being amongst one of the most beautiful airports in the world, it is also one of the busiest and largest. The airport features the Reef Runway, the first in the world to be built offshore, as well as three other runways. Thirty-four international, domestic, inter-island, and commuter carriers use the airport. With a large selection of retail shops, bars, and restaurants, there are many ways to pass the time before or after your Honolulu flights. Ten miles south of Waikiki and six miles from Honolulu, passengers can travel onward by taxi, bus, car, or SpeediShuttle. Following your Honolulu flights, book taxis at the center median near the baggage reclaim or ride one of the public buses to take you all over the island.
Blessed with year-round tropical weather, rest assured that after your flights to Honolulu, you will arrive in the sunshine. The temperature is basically the same throughout the year, averaging highs of 80 ñ 90F and lows of 65F ñ 75F, thus ensuring pleasant weather whatever time of year your flights to Honolulu arrive. Rainy season is between October and April. Having said that, it rains lightly in the summer and heavier during the winter. The whale season runs from December to May, usually making this a peak travel season. So bring your summer clothes and suntan lotion and enjoy your Honolulu flights.
Honolulu When to Go
It's hard to pick the best time to visit Honolulu since the weather is perfect nearly year-round. So it makes sense that when Old Man Winter has most of the U.S. in his icy grasp (yes, northeast, we’re talking to you), Honolulu is inundated with tourists.
Rarely reaching 90 degrees and never less than 65, you’re almost guaranteed good weather. And if you’re looking for a bit of diversity, take a drive around Oahu and experience the island’s multiple microclimates.
High season runs from mid-December through March, with the hotel rates peaking accordingly. You’ll find the best deals in the spring (mid-April to mid-June) and fall (September to early December), and the smallest crowds.
Swimming in the ocean is a given any time of year, since water temps rarely drop below 77 degrees, even in the winter months. If visiting between November and March, you’ll likely encounter some periods of rain. However, this less-than-perfect weather coincides with the humpback whale migration. The majestic mammals arrive from as far away as Alaska to congregate in Hawaii’s warm waters. Their mating rituals require more activity at the surface, which makes for great viewing.
