About Ellison Onizuka Kona international airport arrivals

The International Airport of Ellison Onizuka Kona (IATA: KOA) is near Hawaii County, Island of Hawaii. The airport serves the township of Kailua-Kona and Leeward (west) Hawaii, with resorts in the districts of North Kona and South Kohala. In 2017-2021, it is with a small primary business service, in the Federal Aviation Administration’s National Plan (FAA).

The tourism-focused on the eastern part of Hawaii and Hilo, before the expansion of the airport in the 1970s to increase Kona flight arrivals. Tourists flew to Hilo from the Kona side of the island and went all over the island. Although the Royal Kona Resort was completed in 1968, it does not have roads other than a large airport at the Kona Village Resort. It helped move tourism from eastern Hawaii to western Hawaii when the airport opened in 1970 for KOA airport arrivals. When the 1960 tsunami destroyed all coastal hotels, Hilo’s tourism was already a success.
