We're cash-free. Accepted forms of payment.
Due to fire risk, electronic cigarettes are not allowed to be transported in checked baggage and may be placed in carry-on baggage only. Electronic cigarettes may not be used in any Island Air facility or aircraft.

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.

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.
Liability for lost or damaged baggage is limited to $3,400 per fare-paying passenger. To begin the claim process, a written report must be filed with Island Air prior to leaving the premises of Island Air and no more than four hours after flight arrival. In the event of failure to give notice, no action shall lie against Island Air. Please retain airline ticket receipts, claim checks and damaged goods until the research process is completed.
