Current Volcano Conditions

Jan 01, 1970

  • There is absolutely no reason at this time for travelers to change or alter their leisure or business plans.
  • All of the Hawaiian Islands are unaffected by Kilauea volcano except a remote area on the island of Hawaii’s east side. Out of the island’s 4,028 square miles, only less than a 10-square-mile area of Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens Subdivisions in Puna is affected.
  • Air Access: All flights into the Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keahole – KOA (west) and Hilo International Airport – ITO (east) are operating normally.
  • **Accommodations and Activities: **All accommodations, activities and attractions on the island are also operating normally, with the exception of those in the area affected by the lava activity.
  • Air Quality: The clean and safe air quality on the island of Hawaii remains largely unchanged with this situation. However, air quality near where the lava is flowing can be hazardous (SO2-sulfur dioxide), which is why officials are keeping people out of the affected areas and continuing to monitor air quality.
