About Big Island Jet Center

Operations started December 14, 2023!

The Big Island Jet Center (BIJC) FBO is open and development continues at the south end of the Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport (PHKO/KOA) in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Project development started in 2018 when a 35-year lease was secured on the last readily developable tract of airside land at the Airport.

Big Island Jet Center was operational as of December 14, 2023, with the initial development reflecting approximately 9 acres of private ramp and in July a 50,000-gallon Jet fuel storage facility. This private ramp is capable of accommodating the largest general aviation aircraft that frequents the Airport and will more than double the general aviation ramp capacity at KOA. Initial operations commenced via a well-appointed temporary terminal structure, to be followed by a state-of-the-art, first-class executive terminal building completed in 2025. The future executive terminal will encompass +/- 7,500 square feet with a variety of passenger and crew amenities.

We currently feature

  • More than 9 acres of safe, efficient parking with planeside vehicle access
  • Indoor and Outdoor passenger seating area, luggage handling and security
  • Finely appointed restrooms
  • Flight kitchen with food storage facility
  • Ramp and FBO wifi
  • Ramp and stair access for widebody aircraft
  • Full FBO services including towing, lav service, potable water, USDA inspections, catering access, rental vehicle and hotel rates

In addition, future development of the BIJC project will include up 36,500 square feet of executive hangar space capable of handling virtually all of today’s general aviation fleet, as well as accompanying private office areas.
