    Our aging Honolulu airport is set to get a major multi-million dollar makeover.
    Upgrades that will take several years to complete and change the way planes move in and out.
    The modernization project will take three key areas of the airport and transform them to make traveling easier, safer and more user friendly.

    Buckle up, and prepare for a major overhaul at Honolulu International Airport.
    A $750-million project will begin rolling out this year to upgrade the aging facility. Starting with where you rent your car.

    "Similar to what you've seen in mainland airports, it will be one stop shopping for your car rental agencies, closer and easier for the public," said Caroline Sluyter with the State Dept. Of Transportation.

    the car rentals are right across the street from the terminal now, you just walk there. Gotta love the spin, and the comments from the the guy from Montana.

    The Mauka concourse has been in the works for years.

    They've been working on this airport forever... and the airlines that fly out of the far gates need to do something about that. You have to walk about 300 miles to get to the US Airways gates after you clear security.

    It almost cannot possibly be closer than it is now.
    Just so long as they don't go the way of LAS or PHX. Those Rental Car buses waste a massive amount of time when the airport is busy.

    Yes, I've been a rider on several of the PHX buses. Very crowded buses.
