Honolulu International accommodates world travelers throughout all hours of the day, unlike most United States airports that are fairly quiet in the dead of night. Even though this airport is open 24 hours a day, gate and baggage claim areas are used just eight hours a day on average. Until recently, these areas were lit and air conditioned around the clock because the airport wanted to ensure a comfortable environment for its visitors.
Constructed in 1964, Honolulu International Airport (Honolulu, HI) serves 24 million passengers and 31 airlines at 34 gates yearly. It is a major destination for flights carrying travelers across continents, as well as visitors to all of the Hawaiian Islands.
