American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and US Airways all utilize Boeing 757-200’s between Lihue and their mainland destinations. Alaska Airlines and WestJet utilize Next Generation Boeing 737-800’s between Lihue and their mainland destinations; while Hawaiian Airlines uses Boeing 717-200’s between Lihue and Honolulu. The airport's runway can handle planes up to and including the size of a DC-10. The airport is mostly un-walled, and the check in is completely outside.
