Inouye International Airport on Oahu, making it easy for visitors who want to schedule their departure at a specific time. And the flight into Oahu, is a sight for sore eyes as you pass the stunning ridges of Leahi (Diamond Head) and catch glimpses of surfers dotted around the islands’ many surf breaks.

Interesting Facts About Maui
If you’re flying in from San Francisco, you may already know a little something about foggy weather, but did you know you can find a different kind of fog on Maui too? If you take a drive up one of Maui’s main volcanoes, Haleakala, the altitude gets so high that you’ll literally pass through the clouds before arriving at the now-dormant shield volcano's summit. It’s not something you’d expect to find on the normally sunny island of Maui, but makes for a great memory on your day trip to one of the islands’ top attractions.
