Flights Review

Mar 31, 2020

My personal tv screen located in the head rest in front of me stopped working on my seat and attendant offered a 50$ travel voucher. She mentioned the plane was “old” and she hopes they get replaced soon. That didn’t comfort me in any way and the broken screen in front of me was now the least of my worries!

Dec 15, 2019

Entertainment options only for additional charge- would have preferred at least one or two in-flight movies included. Also expected one real meal on a 6-hour flight but had only snacks, subs and a cheese/fruit platter, and also at additional cost. Only coffee, juices and soft drinks were served at no additional cost, one meal would have been welcome.

Why You Should Take A Flight To Kona, Hawaii

The Kona coast on the west side of Hawaii offers some of Hawaii’s finest scenery – exquisite beaches with clear Pacific waters that make for great surfing, active volcanoes and the stunning national park of Kaloko-Honokohau. The largest town in Kona is Kailua-Kona, a hugely popular destination to get married, thanks to its many romantic spots, so book your tickets to Kona Hawaii now.

When To Book Flights To Kona

In the Hawaiian language, Kona means “leeward”, indicating this part of the coastline is one of Hawaii’s driest areas all year round as it’s protected from the mainly north-easterly winds that bring rain. Hawaii’s weather is generally mild and warm all year round, with summer temperatures averaging 85F and winters of average 79F, making any time perfect to visit the Kona coast. However, in summer and winter hotels and flights can cost up to three times as much in low season, so plan your trip for spring of fall.

How To Find The Best Flight Deals To Kona

With regular flights to many US cities, finding cheap flights to Kona Hawaii is easy and when you book with Orbitz you have lots of options to find the best deals.

The ‘Show options’ button and menu on the left of the results screen allow you to filter and sort your results, so you can search by airline, flight duration, price, ticket type and look for direct or connecting flights.

  • Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL)

How To Get Around Kona

From Kona airport, taxis to Kailua-Kona cost around $25 and can be found outside the baggage claim halls. The Hele-On shuttle bus to Kailua-Kona is a limited service – check times before you fly. The airport is also a hub for Mokulele Airlines, which offers shuttle and charter flights to Big Island’s smaller airports and the outlying Hawaiian island chain. If you are flying into Honolulu or Hilo, you will need to book a connecting flight to Kona.

A shuttle service, the Keauhou Honu Express, runs along Alii Drive, Kailua-Kona’s main drag, and reaches most hotels, resorts and points of interest. It costs $2 per ride. Otherwise, car rental is the way to go as there is no public transportation in the region and taxis are very expensive.

What Are The Must-Sees In Kona

Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park lies four miles north of Kailua-Kona and is popular for snorkeling and turtle-watching. The barren landscape still has the ponds used by early settlers to trap fish so they could survive. . Boat tours depart from Honokohau Harbor – choose a trip that allows you to swim with dolphins, or just spot whales or try ocean fishing.

The world-famous Ironman World Championship Triathlon takes place in Kailua-Kona. If extreme sports aren’t your thing, explore the town on foot to see the many historic buildings, including the former royal palaces of Kamakahonu and Huliheʻe, and Kailua Pier. The central shopping district lies on Ali'i Drive, just north of the pier.

Head 12 miles south of Kailua-Kona to Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park to see where explorer Captain James Cook was killed in 1779. It’s best reached by hiking, but a local boat ride to approach it from the ocean offers a different perspective.

Tips for Traveling in Hawaii

Hawaii is the 50th US state so you don’t need a visa to visit.

The nearby Kilauea volcano regularly belches out vog (volcanic smog) – depending on the wind it can blanket the Kona Coast and cause respiratory problems for some people.
