Inter Island Flights

I'll be staying in Maui and Honolulu each for a week. in April. We are wanting to fly to the Volcano Park area for a day trip.

Is is better time wise and price wise to to an inter-island flight from Maui to the Volcano Park area or is it better to fly from Honolulu to the Volcano Park area?

Please advise.

Thanks.

Honolulu has more direct flights. I think (unless it changed) there is just one or two direct flights a day from OGG (Maui) to ITO (Hilo) with the rest connecting in HNL. It would also be cheaper to fly HNL to ITO.

Hawaiian Airlines is developing a second "hub" in Kahului/Maui (OGG). By April, you may find that you have more direct Kahului to Hilo options than if you booked right now.

That being said, the flight from Honolulu to Hilo would only be ... maybe 15 minutes longer than from Kahului.

So - it all depends on which island you feel you could "sacrifice" a day to fly to Hilo. Maybe block out your itinerary a little.

Take an early morning flight, book your car in advance ...

I would consider doing it on the day that you move from one island to the other ... that will cut out the time and expense of an additional inter island flight... but it does mean travelling with all of your belongings while visiting VNP.
