Molokai Airport is the primary airport for the Island. You’ll need a Molokai Airport map to fully understand the area. Airports are identified by an airport code. The commonly known airport code for Molokai Airport is MKK. The full list of airport codes includes Molokai Airport (IATA: MKK, ICAO: PHMK, FAA LID: MKK).

Travelers to Molokai will quickly notice that it is a pretty small airport and small airport terminal. The whole terminal is about the size of one gate at Honolulu Airport. However, size does not matter in this case. You’ve landed on an Island that differs from most in Hawaii. You still get amazing tropical weather, ocean and beach. You don’t get crowds of people. The population of Molokai is about 8,000. In 2016 there were about 60,000 visitors to Molokai. Compare 60,000 visitors to about 8,000,00, that’s 8 million, visiting Oahu. The size of the Island makes it the 5th largest, at about 38 miles long and 10 miles wide. Enjoy your vacation in a more relaxed atmosphere.
Our experience with people that visit, is that they are frequently those from Alaska and Canadian Provinces with similar populations. Get warm and sunny, avoid the crowds.
Note: There is another airport on the Island of Molokai. It serves Kalaupapa and is called Kalaupapa Airport (LUP). This airport is specifically for the residents of the Kalaupapa Settlement and visitors touring the Kalaupapa National Historical Park.
