It’s fair to say that the most stressful period of any vacation is the portion that takes place at the airport! This is especially the case if you are going to a place that you have never been to before because the airport will be unfamiliar. Of course, most airports share a very similar setup and it can sometimes be a case of ‘if you’ve been to one, you’ve been to them all, but it is always good to know as much about a particular airport before you get there, just so you don’t end up completely lost and clueless! To help you out here is some key information about the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport before you make your way to your Honolulu private shuttle!
How Many Terminals?
The airport consists of two separate terminals that are both housed within the same large building structure. Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 each have their own dedicated parking areas around the airport, so make sure that you know where you are located on your ticket.
Refreshments and Shopping
The airport has a wide range of stores including designer names like Ralph Lauren, Prada, Burberry, and Coach as well as a duty-free shop and Hawaiian gift shops for last-minute souvenirs. There are plenty of food choices from fast food like burgers as well as local specialties.
Facilities and Amenities
There are currency exchange points in both terminals, ATMs, and car rental desks.
Traveling with Pets
While air travel with pets is something that is dictated by each individual airline, Hawaii maintains very strict quarantine rules for all animals arriving from foreign countries. As for the airport itself, people are not permitted to enter the terminals with any animal unless it is a service animal, an animal that is confined for shipment, or an animal that has been authorized by law enforcement to be there.
What About Accessibility?
People with different levels of physical ability don’t have to worry about being able to navigate the airport. Passengers are able to move through the airport with ease, with all public areas being just as accessible for those in wheelchairs as it is for those on foot.
Something to pay close attention to is the rule that all baggage traveling to Hawaii from mainland USA is subject to preflight inspection by the US Department of Agriculture. This is to enforce strict rules on the transporting of things like fruits, plants, and wildlife.
If you happen to suffer the unfortunate fate of losing an item of luggage when spending time at the airport, you can go to the lost and found desperate mtn to see if someone has handed it in for retrieval. The lost and found office at this particular airport can be found in Terminal 2, and the staff occupying it will do everything in their power to try to reunite you with the item of luggage that you have lost before you need to move on with your journey.
So, now that you have a better grasp of what you will find at the airport, the only thing left to do is arrange your Honolulu private shuttle. The best way to sort this is to go to the Honolulu Private Transportation website for all of the information that you need about booking a shuttle. It is the best and most convenient way to travel from A to B, and we look forward to being of assistance on your holiday.
