Connecting from an international flight to an interisland flight

This series of articles on Hawaii’s airports covers nearly all you need to know about flying to and between the Hawaiian islands. This post covers connecting from an international flight to an interisland flight.

Once you’ve cleared customs, you may recheck bags in the specially marked bag recheck area. It’s located just outside customs, similar to other gateway airports. The baggage recheck area only accepts luggage already tagged for a destination other than Honolulu (such as Maui or Kona).

If you’re connecting to an interisland flight but haven’t checked in yet (meaning your bags don’t have onward tags already), take all your luggage to the interisland terminal and check-in with the carrier you’ve booked.
