We’ve made checking your bags easy and affordable. Our check-in agents are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Passengers may board with one carry-on bag (16 lbs. or less) and one personal item. Carry-on items must be stowed in overhead compartments or underneath the seat in front of you. We’ll gladly check any other baggage for transportation in the cargo compartment.
We are happy to accommodate oversized bags or any other luggage that requires extra care, for a slightly higher fee. Please note that maximum surfboard length is 8 feet.

1 Bicycles need to be assembled with front tire removed or disassembled in a box.

For your convenience, baggage can be checked from your point of origin straight through to your final Island Air destination, if there is a baggage agreement between Island Air and all carriers involved. Inbound mainland travelers should allow a minimum of 75 minutes for connections in Honolulu. International travelers should allow 2 hours. Passengers departing on Island Air with a domestic connection to the U.S. mainland must have baggage checked at a State of Hawaii agricultural inspection station. Agricultural inspection is available at all airports serviced by Island Air.
