In 1920, pilot Charles Fern attempted to fly a passenger from Kapiolani Park to the polo field on Maui. Fern had navigation problems, and couldnít find the polo grounds. He landed instead at the fairgrounds in Kahului, the site that eventually became Mauiís main terminal.
The first landing strips on Maui were located at Maalaea and Puunene. The U.S. government later condemned the Maalaea field, and Puunene became an official Naval air base during World War II. The war presented additional needs for airport facilities, and in 1942 a new Naval Air Station was built on 1,300 acres of cane fields at Kahului. Due to government politics though, it didnít become an official commercial airport until May, 1951. Not much has changed with Kahului
Airport since 1993 when they completed the last terminal reconstruction.
Local attractions on Maui include fabulous beaches, whale watching excursions, some of the best surfing in the world, cane fields and factories, wonderful quaint restaurants and bistros and Haleakala Crater state volcano park.
