There are plans for a major renovation of Lihue Airport on the island of Kauai. Dennis Neves, Kauai Airports district manager, was quoted today in the Pacific Business News saying about $9.2 million has been set aside in the state’s budget for this renovation.

The plan is to accomplish the renovations in stages over the next 5 years which should allow the airport to continue to function without disruption to its services.

Some of the upgrades being considered include expanding the airport’s front entrance and the area for passengers to check-in, the seating areas and the security checkpoint.

Neves said Wi-Fi service throughout the airport is also in the plan. That is something many locals have been pushing for years and will be a welcome improvement.

Despite the increased traffic Kauai’s Lihue airport has continued to provide reliable and reasonably efficient service for travelers. If you have traveled to Kauai recently you probably had no significant delays, unless a connecting mainland flight had a problem.

The planned renovations should make this small, friendly airport even better. The project is expected to begin in 2017.

That sounds like a great plan. I'll be in Kauai at least once before they begin construction, just not sure when

Kathleen, this should be great for visitors and I always preferred direct flights into the neighbor islands to avoid the hustle and bustle of Honolulu!
