Hawaii Volcano Update
What You Need To Know
There is no reason why visitors planning a trip to the Big Island of Hawaii should change, alter, or cancel their travel arrangements.
None of the Hawaiian Islands are affected by the Kīlauea Volcano with the exception of a remote area along the Lower East Rift Zone on the island of Hawai‘i’s east side, Kīlauea Summit, and surrounding areas. Out of the Big Island's 4,000+ square miles, this is over 100 driving miles from Kona and the Courtyard King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel.
All flights into the Kona and Hilo International Airports are operating normally. In addition, all activities and attractions throughout the Hawaiian Islands are operating normally, with the exception of those in the area affected by lava activity.
Air quality remains largely unchanged. However, air quality near the volcanic activity may be hazardous (SO2-sulfur dioxide) and light ash fall may be present. Officials are continuing to monitor air quality.
