Hawaii Sees New Jet Center at Onizuka Kona

Big Island Jet Center Sports 9 Acres of Space to Refuel Anything Under the Sun

The Hawaiian Islands have a new option for travel in the form of the Big Island Jet Center at Kailua-Kona’s Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport (PHKO).

The new location will be open to guests apart from December 14, though a "soft opening" in the week of December 7th will help staff shake things down before things kick up in earnest. The 7,500-sq ft FBO sports all the expected amenities of a modern 'jet center', with a characteristically Hawaiian addition in the form of a gorgeous patio complex to sit and watch the traffic go by. The station also sports the airport's "only private fuel farm and general aviation ramp" with 9 acres of space, allowing even an Airbus A319 to tank up before heading home.

“We couldn’t be happier to open in time for the holiday season, providing exceptional services to Hawaii’s seasonal traffic and general aviation community alike,” said David Johnston, Big Island Jet Center’s senior partner. “Kailua-Kona is home to exquisite resorts; our aim is to offer that exclusive resort experience from wheels down to wheels up as the airport’s sole independent FBO. Big Island Jet Center is an investment in the private aviation experience, an investment in the airport and an investment in the Kailua-Kona community. We’re ready to take luxury to new heights.”

The location is an Avfuel-branded FBO, with contract fuel and pro car support via AVTRIP.
