Kona International Airport (KOA) is the preferred airport on Hawaii Island for international arrivals.

There is a smaller airport in Hilo, but it is a 2-hour drive from Kailua-Kona, which is where the race HQ will be. We recommend all M2M competitors arrive into KOA.

The largest airport in Hawaii State is Honolulu International Airport (HNL). Most flights from the USA and around the world land at HNL.
However an increasing number of airlines are flying into KOA and we recommend that you check if you can travel on an airline, which will arrive at KOA instead of connecting through HNL.
