Since then it has become a major hub for inter-island travel with over 600,000 passengers passing through annually.

Flights to Canada are available on Air Canada Express while connecting flights to Asia are available via Korean Air Lines or Delta Airlines. Freight carriers such as FedEx also use Hilo Airport for shipping goods throughout Hawaii and the mainland United States.
