Maui's main airport located in the city of Kahului with airport code OGG.

• Transportation: Airport

If you flew to Maui from the mainland or another island then chances are good this is the airport you used. It's Maui's main airport and located at the north end of central Maui in the city of Kahului.

It's not a big airport but not overly tiny either and it tends to get crowded here. With that in mind, plan to arrival with plenty of time to get through the security checkpoints when you're leaving the island.

Transportation counters can also be slow here. Expect very slow lines to get your rental car if you aren't a preferred club member for your car company. For another take on this, read our reviews of Thrifty Car Rental and Dollar Rent a Car.

There are a few quick dining options in the airport so if you need a bite before your flight you'll likely find something that will fill your belly, like California Pizza Kitchen.

Curious as to why this airport has the code of OGG? Turns out that the airport is paying homage to Bertram J. Hogg who was an aviation pioneer who worked for what became Hawaiian Airlines. I think HOG wouldn't have been a better code but it's a neat little story anyhow.
