Arrivals And Departures

Arrivals and departures at the Hilo airport is a daily occurrence.  The busy little airport is a hub of tourism and cargo transportation.  One of the pleasant, and attractive features, about Hilo airport is its local feel and character.  Originally known as “General Lyman Field“, the airport was renamed as Hilo International Airport after the Hawai’i department of transportation took it over the operations.

The airport is nestled along the Waiakea and Keaukaha Hawaiian homelands in south Hilo.  The airport is small enough to handle large traffic, yet small enough to preserve that small town feel.  No large presence of most major airports like Honolulu, with long lines and crowded terminals.  Departure terminals are open air waiting areas free from hanging televisions broadcasting 24 hour news stories.  It’s quiet and reflective, roomy and comfortable.  It keeps that small town feel found nowhere else but in Hawai’i’s second largest city.

From Hilo Bay, you can watch arrival and departure flights while casting a fishing line into the bay.  From the flight you can view the landscapes of east Hawai’i coastline.   Revealing small town villages, water falls, surfing shorelines and rocky cliffs.

What I love about Moku o Keawe (The Big Island) is the ruralness.  East Hawai’i island is still very much country life with sprawling farms and vast landscapes of empty country side.  If you’re looking for night-life and big city life, you won’t find it here.  Crowded highways and stacked apartment skyscrapers don’t exist here.  You can witness a night sky crowded with stars, and the outline of the Milky Way.  You can get lost watching the waves roll in from the shore line.  You can find quiet places here just to reflect.  It’s the biggest small town life you cannot find elsewhere.  Lucky you live Hawai’i.
