New to Maui - two airports?

I have been pricing trips to Maui for this fall. There are two airports

Iisted on expedia. Does it matter which one we use? We are planning on staying near Kaanapali. One airport is significantly less expensive than the other. How far is each airport to Kaanapali?

Kahului (OGG) is the main, larger airport. It's about 45 minutes to Kaanapali.

Kapalua (JHM) is about 15 minutes to Kaanapali but only serves smaller commuter flights from other islands.

You'll want to fly into OGG.

Island Air is the only commercial carrier that flies into Kapalua...and I believe from Honolulu only

Kapalua (JHM) airport is in West Mau in Mahinahina area.

It operates during daylight hours.

The car rentals are about 10 minutes away.

Kahului airport (OGG) has larger airplanes and they do fly in

the dark.

Car rentals are at the airport and surrounding areas.

@swmarket,

I understand that. I was referring just to the connections that served Kapalua (it's actually Honolulu and Moloka'i). I certainly know that Island Air serves all of the islands.

Second time today, my answer confused somebody! Gotta be a Monday.
