Popular Hilo Routes
While Hawaiian Airlines has dozens of routes to Hilo from gateway cities across the U.S., as well as neighbor islands, some are more popular than others, which is important to know for travelers trying to calculate their Hilo airfare. If visitors are looking to island-hop—who isn’t!—know that inter island routes from Oahu to Hawaii Island, like direct flights from Honolulu to Hilo (HNL to ITO) and Hilo to Honolulu (ITO to HNL) as well as Hilo to Kona (ITO to KOA) are among the busiest. For mainland flyers departing from the Los Angeles International Airport, it’s also important to keep in mind that those departing from LAX and looking to land in Hilo, Hawaii, with a quick stop-off at HNL, is among the airlines most popular routes.
What to Expect at the Hilo International Airport
Just like Hilo town, the Hilo airport—the Hilo International Airport code is ITO—has that distinct, authentic aloha charm that is special to Hawaii Island. Sure, it may not have the hustle and bustle of HNL, but the lowkey airport, which is actually the island’s largest airport, has not one, but two lei stands—Ah Lan’s Lei Stand and Lin’s Lei Stand, which also happen to sell gorgeous tropical jewelry. And if you’re famished from your Hilo flights, ITO’s main restaurant has some truly ʻono (that’s “delicious” in the Hawaiian Language) plates on offer, from local-style comfort foods—loco moco, anybody?—to burgers, plate lunches and more.
