OGG Runway Expansion Project

Continuing the discussion on the OGG Runway project that started in this thread:

I noticed a minor blurb today:

Summary: DOT says EIS moving forward, we're not announcing or haven't decided which option yet.

What about brand new terminal, parking garage, inline baggage screening system? The entire terminal is more than 30 years old. Way too old. I think it's time to replace a brand new terminal & international terminal as well. They need CBP facility for incoming international flight arrival.

@n830MH. Zero chance of international flights into OGG. That fight occurred a few years ago and locals preferred less air traffic. Also, Kanaha beach park borders the airport and is most easily accessed via driving through the airport traffic loop. Locals weren't especially interested in making that drive even more difficult.
