Travelers check in at Hawaiian Airlines’ newly designed lobby area at Kahului Airport on Friday. The redesigned area was blessed Friday. It includes 38 check-in kiosks, which are set up in a “V” formation to improve passenger flow, additional curbside kiosks to expedite curbside check-in, new lighting, new ticket counters with new computers, bag scales and bag drop areas, and new signs. The design patterns of the lobby were the work of master tattooist Keone Nunes, who hosted the blessing in the lobby.
