We’re not only about shuttling mainland visitors to and from the island’s hotels and resorts. Honolulu Airport Transfer has been serving kama’aina and the local communities with HNL transportation since the inception of our business. One area that we’ve become quite familiar with over the years is Makakilo. Overlooking the ‘Ewa district, the residential community is brimming with individuals and family households in need of a vacation or brief inter-island escape. It’s out job to get you to the airport as enjoyably and efficiently as possible. Below is everything you need to know.
Best Way to Get from Makakilo to Honolulu International Airport and What Else You Need to Know
Take an Affordable, Direct, and Private Shuttle
You know that feeling you get when someone asks you for a ride to the airport? That’s how they’ll feel if you ask the same of them. Don’t put your friends and ohana in that position. Now of course you can’t take TheBus with any kind of luggage load, but even with a carry-on that Country Express to #9 to #19 is a terrible gauntlet to run and will have you disgruntled by the time you get to your terminal. Traditional taxi? That’s way too expensive, coming in at around $85 during busy hours – and that’s if you catch it from the Walmart on Farrington, not the comforts of your home on the hills of Makakilo.
You might be considering an Uber or Lyft, which seems to make sense given that you may use a ride-hailing service to get around other parts of the island. However, when you’re headed to the airport the variables change. Is it just you, or a party of two or more? Do you have a significant amount of luggage in tow? For most households heading to HNL from Makakilo an Uber or Lyft XL will be required, which increases the price significantly, making it no longer a financially reasonable option. Plus, many locals don’t want to spend the 20-30 minute ride to the airport engaged in small talk with a random non-professional driver. You just want to get to the airport and prepare for your flight.
We’ve removed three options from consideration. So what now? The good news is that you have a first class option without having to pay first class prices. Honolulu Airport Transfer offers Makakilo residents with direct, private, air-conditioned, comfortable, and professional airport transportation service. Our low flat rate from Makakilo ranges between $60-65 depending where in the expansive community you live. This rate includes up to four passenger and a full luggage load which makes it the most economical option next to having a cousin cram your things into his Honda Civic with gas money and an owed favor as payment. Your commercially licensed personal driver will load your luggage in the luxury minivan, take you directly to your terminal, unload the luggage, and send you off on your adventure with a healthy dose of aloha. It’s that simple!
Remember to give us 24-hours notice and we’ll pick you and your party up from Makakilo and take you directly to your Honolulu Airport terminal. Call us at 1.800.929.1219 or complete the form found here.
