  • Description

    The Island of Kauai, appropriately named as 'The Garden Island', is draped in lush green valleys, spiked with rugged cliffs, and adorned with waterfalls - the true definition of paradise. And if you are fortunate enough to be headed that way, chances are you'll pass through the island's primary airport, Lihue Airport.

    Airport is located about 1.5 miles east of the town of Lihue, along Kauai's southeast coast. Visitors consistently give the facility high marks for its ease of navigation, cleanliness, friendly staff, laid-back yet professional atmosphere, and partially open-air design.

    LIH's origins date back to 1948 when land was purchased and a runway was constructed. By 1949, limited services were provided, and the terminal was still under construction. Soon thereafter, construction was completed and the terminal was dedicated in January 1950. As soon as it opened, the airport saw a huge spike in passenger traffic that exceeded prior estimates. Just one year later, plans were set in motion to enlarge the facility.
    By 1955 the airport covered 160 acres and included a restaurant, parking lot, ground transportation, improved runway, hangars, and lighting. Several additions and improvements were made over the next several years.
    By 1974, as the number of passengers continued to increase, it became evident that the facility was not equipped to meet the demands. In addition, airlines were starting to use larger aircraft, rendering the single runway inadequate.
    A new runway was dedicated in 1984; its completion also marked the beginning of a modernization plan for the facility, which was soon undertaken.
    The current terminal was dedicated in 1987. The upgrades also included a new parking lot, enlarged airport roadways, and modernized utility systems.
    Today, Lihue Airport occupies 879 acres and sees air carrier, general aviation, air taxi, and military operations. Approximately 8,100 passengers per day utilize the facility, most of whom arrive via American, Delta, United, Alaska Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, Southwest, and WestJet.

    While you wait for your flight, be sure to peruse the various display cases and artwork located throughout the terminal. Some of these change periodically, but you can often find information regarding native plant and animal species, books written by various Kauai authors, artwork, and other displays of cultural value. As an added bonus, there is traditional Hawaiian entertainment provided at intervals throughout the day for your listening pleasure. It's the perfect way to either set the mood for your stay on Kauai or say goodbye to the beautiful Garden Island.

    Again Northern Sky Studios delivered an absolutely stunning detailed recreation of an airport. In this case it is the wonderful airport Lihu'e in Kauai, that I personally know from several visits during various vacations. Since MSFS 2020 was published I was waiting several years hoping that especially Northern Sky Studios would select this airport for creation because just they everytime manage to really reproduce the whole charme of very special wonderful airports outside and inside and they delivered again. All terminal buildings are not only reproduced exactly but also recreated inside in all wonderful details. There remains very few to wish but: - the streets next to the airport's roundabout and the "Lihue Airport" sign should be modelled for much better texture quality instead of using air images. - Two shops inside are closed (gards closed) - it would be more beautiful if these where opened ...but this is critisizing on a very high level ;). So this airport is an absolute must-have for Hawaii-Lovers.
