Kahului Airport is a regional airport in the state of Hawai'i, located east of the Kahului CDP in Maui County on the island of Maui near Haleakala. Most flights originate from Honolulu International Airport; the Honolulu-Kahului corridor is one of the busiest air routes in the US, ranking 13th in 2004 with 1,632,000 passengers. (If 'route' refers to a single pair of airports, HNL-OGG has been at or near the top of the US list for decades.) The airport code pays homage to aviation pioneer Bertram J. Hogg who worked for what is now Hawaiian Airlines flying aircraft ranging from 8-passenger Sikorsky S-38 amphibians to Douglas DC-3s and DC-9s into the late 1960s.
