Hawaiian renovates in Honolulu
HAWAIIAN Airlines is renovating its Honolulu lobbies, with new check-in kiosks launched in November 2019 among a series of projects designed to enhance the travel experience at Daniel K. Inouye International.
Lobby 2 and 3 in Terminal 1 received 54 new kiosks, which is an increase on the previous 48, and is part of a two-year modernisation program in Honolulu, with the airline last year also updating the lobbies in Hilo, Kahului, Kona and Lihue.
Also being revamped as part of the modernisation program are new guest services, new baggage drops and premium check-in counters, and a Mauka Concourse, expected to be open by 2021, with a Mauka security checkpoint.
Slated to occur during off-peak hours and overnight to minimise disruption, the lobby refresh has seen Hawaiian partner with Maui master tattooist and cultural practitioner Keone Nunes, who will develop a unique island “niho” (symbol) representing “the theme of voyaging at each of its airport spaces”.
