HiDOT Jacks up Airport Parking Fees in Effort to Price You Out
By News Release @ 2:25 PM :: 2130 Views :: Tourism, Cost of Living


Incremental rate structure increases will continue through 2027.

News Release from HiDoT, June 23, 2023

HONOLULU – Beginning July 1, 2023, the hourly rate for parking for six or more hours at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) will increase and the new maximum daily rate will be $24.

The incremental rate structure agreement was negotiated under the previous administration in 2018 under the long-term airport parking agreement. Based on this agreement, the parking concessionaire began system modernizations including fiber optic installations, a camera tracking system for entering and departing vehicles, automated calculations of parking fees, and LED displays of available stalls. The fee structure through June 30, 2028, is:

  CURRENT Effective Effective Effective Effective July 1, 2027 – June 30, 2028
  1-Jul-23 1-Jul-24 1-Jul-25 1-Jul-26
1<15-min Free Free Free Free Free Free
16-30 min $1 $1 $1 $1 $1 $1
31-60 min $3 $3 $3 $3 $3 $3
1-2 hours $5 $5 $5 $6 $6 $6
2-3 hours $7 $7 $7 $9 $9 $9
3-4 hours $9 $9 $10 $12 $12 $12
4-5 hours $14 $14 $15 $17 $17 $17
5-6 hours $18 $18 $19 $21 $21 $21
6-7 hours $19 $20 $21 $23 $24 $24
7-8 hours $20 $22 $23 $25 $27 $27
8+ hours $22 $24 $25 $27 $29 $30


The first rate increase under the long-term parking agreement took effect January 1, 2023. (LINK)

The 15-minute grace period and parking rate for the first hour will remain the same, to support use of the parking structures for community members dropping off or picking up passengers at HNL. The free airport cell phone lots will also continue to be available for those picking up passengers.

By pricing overnight and multiple-day parking appropriately, the Hawaiʻi Department of Transportation expects the additional benefit of reduced demand for overnight and multiple-day parking.
