The Hawaiian Department of Transportation (HDOT) is funding a 10-year, USD1.1 billion terminal expansion project at Daniel K Inouye International Airport in Honolulu.
The Diamond Head Commuter Terminal will be managed by a new entity called the Hawaii Airports Corporation, which reports to the HDOT. Funds for the project will come from airport operating revenues instead of taxes.
Once completed, the new-look terminal will cover 800,000 ft 2 , on a site east of the existing Diamond Head Concourse. There will be six gates and parking positions for 12–14 widebody aircraft, instead of six today, with the potential to expand to 21.
A new 200,000 ft 2 US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facility will be capable of processing 4,000 arriving passengers per hour. Other improvements include new checkpoint and hold baggage screening facilities for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
