Hawaii Aviation | Princeville Airport

Princeville Airport

Princeville Airport opened in 1977 as a quasi-public general aviation airport.  Two commuter airlines served the airport with frequent daily flights.

In November 1983 Hurricane Iwa hit Kauai and caused millions of dollars in damage to homes, businesses and agricultural land.  Lihue Airport did not have the capacity to handle all the emergency flights bringing in supplies, so some smaller planes landed at Princeville.

The state entered into a lease agreement with the owner of Princeville Airport on December 5, 1994 to take over the operations and maintenance of the airport.  It was anticipated that the airfield would become part of the State Airport System.

Act 287, SLH 1996, appropriated $100,000 for design to widen Runway 5-23.

In January 1997 Island Air ceased flying passengers from Princeville Airport.  It had been using an 18-passenger deHavilland Dash-8 plane on two daily trips to Honolulu.

The State decided to drop its management lease of Princeville Airport in 1999.
