No long walks to terminals and TSA security that takes only seconds. This is how air travel should be.

• Transportation: Airport

Remember the bygone days of air travel when flying on a airplane was much easier and more relaxed? Neither do I but I imagine this is about as close as we'll ever get to those days again.

Lana'i City Airport (LNY) is a super tiny airport with one runway that only small turbo-prop style planes can use. No big jets are landing here anytime soon, unless Larry Ellison (who now owns most of Lana'i island) gets his way and gets a second runway built).

Either way, this isn't likely to ever become a major hub for any big airlines which means (hopefully) it will stay just like it is so that you can blow in and out of this place with ease. No more having to arrive hours early for your flight, just roll in 30 minutes before boarding time, get your boarding pass (or print online), stroll through security, and walk onto your plane.

To be clear, this place does have the same TSA procedures in place that all USA airports have so we can all feel warm, fuzzy, and secure about flying in a very insecure world. The difference here is that it's so small that you won't have long lines forming while you get through that process.

There are bathrooms here but you won't find any food options. Shuttles from the airport will travel to the island hotels and back as well. If you plan to rent a car from Dollar Rent A Car Lana'i you will need to take the shuttle to town where Dollar is located.
