We think you'll find the Honolulu International Airport to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing airports in the world. Our airport is surrounded by lush greenery, tropical plants, and coconut palm trees. While waiting for your flight take a few moments to visit the miniature arboretum lush with vegetation and koi ponds located on the first floor in the center of the airport. You museum buffs might enjoy visiting the airport museum located on the second floor near the center of the airport. You gamers can visit the game room located near Gate #13. (Here you can take out some of your travel stress on a virtual person instead of your flight attendant.) Whatever your tastes - including the food courts (which offer a little local flavor) - we're sure you'll find our airport to provide you with the most casual, laid-back, aloha-filled traveling experience in the world.
