Kona International Airport at Keahole occupies 3,450 acres of land about seven miles northwest of Kailua-Kona on the island of Hawaii. The airport accommodates domestic overseas, international, interisland, commuter/air taxi, and general aviation activities. It has an 11,000-foot runway and a complex of facilities at the eastern edge of the airfield for arriving and departing passengers, air cargo and mail, airport support, and general aviation operations. These facilities are served by an access roadway extending from the Queen Kaahumanu Highway. At the passenger terminals, the access roadway forms a one-way loop enclosing public parking and rental car check-in facilities. An additional complex of facilities, used primarily by rental car agencies for returns, general maintenance, and storage is located along the airport access roadway, midway between the passenger terminals and the highway. General aviation, cargo, and related facilities are located to the south of the passenger terminals and the access roadway.
