With its location of about one and a half-mile east of the Lihue town, this simple partially open-air airport occupies 943 acres with two runways, one terminal, and only ten gates.

The airport is well known for being very easy to access, and it is visitor-friendly. Ticketing is located at the ground level of the Terminal, which is divided into two lobbies with two security checkpoints. Lost and found office is in lobby B close to the security checkpoint.
