I am confused. First they were going to build a new pier where the old interisland teminal is. But like all contructions projects in Hawaii, it is delayed or is it cancelled?
Now they want to build another concourse where the current Diamond Head terminal is located!!!
Construction should start in 5 years and take 5 years (yeah right!) to complete.

So based on the Star-Advertiser rendering it looks like they are going back to plan A which could mean a complete replacement of the Ewa Concourse as well. This is what HNL needs; get rid of those stupid buses.

aloha73g wrote:Correct. The construction of the Mauka Concourse where the current Commuter Terminal is should be starting soon. Hawaiian desperately needs more space for check in, security, gates, lounges, etc. The interisland terminal (Terminal 2) is literally bursting at the seams!! This can't come soon enough. Based on HA's recent comments it sounds like they will be using their tax-cut savings to heavily renovate HNL's Terminal 2.
Mokulele has a notice on their website that they are moving to the Main Terminal (Terminal 3) effective May 1 ... It will be interesting to see what gate or area between gates Mokulele will be using.
The shutdown of Island Air has eliminated the need to build a quickie commuter terminal near Gate 6, so thankfully the State is going back to Plan A which is much better for the long-term.
azjubilee wrote:The recent announcements by HA regarding independent investment in the facilities, from what I understand, will be separate from the Mauka concourse. I believe what HA has in mind is in T2, involving creating more space for security, check-in, bag drop and the separate bag belt set-up behind the scenes. Maybe HA even has ideas to bring the aesthetics out of the 90s and improve the passenger experience in T2.

This is good, as HNL looks very outdated for a world class tourist destination and the main airport for the Hawaiian Islands. Hopefully it will improve HA's services and amenities in it's home hub.
