Million Air Honolulu is rich with possibilities
Positioned between Honolulu and Ko Olina, the John Rodgers airport's location, infrastructure and low air traffic compared to Honolulu International, make Kalaeloa a top choice for aircraft travelling from the US mainland.
The facility includes a hangar, FBO, café and fuel farm.

Freeman Holdings Group will soon open Million Air Honolulu at Kalaeloa airport, also called John Rodgers Field in Hawaii. Million Air Honolulu aims to boost aviation traffic in Kapolei with the addition of a planned 30,000 sq ft hangar, 10,000 sq ft state-of-the-art FBO and café, and a new fuel farm with a planned capacity of 150,000 gallons of Jet fuel and 10,000 gallons of Avgas. Phases of construction have begun on the $20 million project, with the fuel farm being complete by November 2021. The FBO will be open and operational in January 2022, servicing customers from a temporary FBO facility. Estimated groundbreaking on the FBO is estimated to be second quarter of 2022.

Centrally located between Honolulu and Ko Olina, the John Rodgers airport's location, infrastructure and low air traffic compared to Honolulu International, make PHJR the optimal choice for aircraft travelling to and from the US mainland. John Rodgers Field can accommodate a wide variety of aircraft with its expansive ramps and long runways of 8,000 ft and 6,000 ft. The airfield has recently undergone significant improvements including partial runway resurfacing, airfield lighting, communications and emergency systems. Planned development and additional upgrades make PHJR an excellent alternative to HNL, and an asset to business and tourism within the Hawaiian Islands.

“As an organisation, we are always looking for under-utilised airports across the country that would benefit from our involvement and private investment that would serve as a catalyst for increasing activity,” says Scott Freeman, CEO of the Freeman Holdings Group. “We have had a successful track record of accomplishing these goals at other airports where we currently operate. We have long had (Kalaeloa) on our list of potential growth locations, and after some due diligence, we felt it was a project worth pursuing.”
