Island of Hawaii Update
May 23, 2018
There are many news reports about Kilauea Volcano on the Island of Hawaii. Below are the facts:
- Hawaii is open for tourism including the Island of Hawaii, Maui, Oahu, Kauai and Lanai. The NCL Hawaiian Islands Cruise continues to operate.
- None of the Hawaiian Islands are affected by Kilauea Volcano except a remote area on the Island of Hawaii’s east side. View a map of the Island of Hawaii. Out of the island’s 4,028 square miles, only a remote area of less than 10-square miles is affected. As a precautionary measure, Hawaii volcanos National Park (some 40 miles away) has been closed indefinitely should a steam explosion occur in the crater.
- The Kilauea Volcano is more than 100 miles away from the Western Kohala and Kona coasts, where the island’s major hotels and resorts are located.
- All flights into Kona International Airport (KOA) and Hilo International Airport (ITO) located on the Island of Hawaii are operating normally.
- Air quality on the Island of Hawaii remains largely unchanged with this situation. Air quality near the lava flow can be hazardous and very light ash may be present.
