Pre-arranged Shuttle Services

There are multiple companies offering pre-arranged shuttle services to and from Kailua-Kona Airport. These services are arranged by the passenger, an agent or another representative for the passenger. The pick-up zone for ride shares and shuttles is located on the curbside in front of where the terminals meet.

Few hotels on the Big Island offer to organize an airport transfer as part of their offerings, paid or courtesy, and because the options are few it is wise to take the transfer into consideration beforehand.
