Flying from Seattle to Kauai with Hawaiian Airlines
While the flight to Lihue is just the first step on your Hawaii vacation—it’s an important one. Getting started on the right foot will make sure you hit the ground running—to the beach, presumably—once you reach Kauai. Known for its verdant valleys, the stunning and rugged Napali Coastline and excellent snorkeling beaches, like Tunnels Beach on the island’s north shore, Kauai is a visitors' dream.
FAQs for booking a flight from Seattle to Lihue
When is the best time to fly from Seattle to Lihue?
The best time to fly to Kauai is entirely up to you. The weather in the islands stays blissfully tropical almost every single day. If you’d like to really maximize your time in the sun, traveling during the summer months will net you a few extra hours of daylight. But really, the best time to book a flight is based on your schedule—it could be next month, in a year or even right now.
What airports serve Seattle and Lihue?
Those departing Tacoma International Airport (SEA) will have a layover at either Kahului Airport (OGG) on Maui or the Daniel K. Inouye Airport (HNL) on Oahu, with stopover times of a few hours, before flyers finish their journey to Lihue Airport (LIH) on Kauai. Even though there are no nonstop flights to Kauai, the layovers at both neighbor island airports can be used as great opportunities to stretch your legs, grab a bit to eat—possibly your first taste of local cuisine!—and take in the views of Maui or Oahu from the air.
How long is the flight from Seattle to Lihue?
Because layovers are involved, your route’s trip time to Kauai is going to depend on how long you’ll be on Oahu or Maui. You’ll be on your plane for a little over six hours on average before arriving in either Honolulu or Kahului, where layover times can range . From there, a short flight to Kauai should only have travelers in the air for 45 minutes to an hour on average.

Kauai travel tips
Fortunately, it’s really hard to have a bad time in Kauai. Whether you’re exploring the north shore beach town of Hanalei or sightseeing at the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, Waimea Canyon, you’ll likely be having the time of your life. However, don’t forget, you now need a reservation to visit Haena State Park, where the crystal clear waters of Tunnels Beach and the start of the Kalalau Trail—which snakes around the Napali Coast—are located. You can make reservations in advance at the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resource’s website.
