• The new lava outbreak in a small area on the eastern side of the Big Island of Hawaii is not affecting tourist activity.
  • None of the Hawaiian Islands are impacted by this new activity except for a very limited area in the Puna District of the Big Island.
  • Flights to and from Kona International Airport (KOA) and Hilo International Airport (ITO) are not affected and are operating as scheduled.
  • All visitor accommodations and activities on the Big Island are operating normally.
  • Air quality on the Big Island is mostly unaffected by the new volcanic activity. In areas close to where the lava is currently flowing, the levels of sulfur dioxide (S2O) in the air can be dangerous. Authorities are monitoring the air quality and keeping residents and visitors at a safe distance from these areas.
