Kahului Airport is in the planning phase of a $36 million dollar improvement to the southern concourse. The improvements would add an additional 400 seats for travelers and an additional 27,000 square feet.
The goal is to keep the unique design the current airport has while increasing areas for walkway traffic, seating and enlarging restroom facilities. Also proposed is an outdoor garden deck that would feature native plants.
Construction will hopefully begin in early 2020. The first phase of the project is estimated to take a year to complete and phase two over two years.
