Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam  –  is a US military facility adjacent to Honolulu, Hawaii. Pearl Harbor is 8 miles from downtown Honolulu.  It is an amalgamation of the USAF Hickam AFB and the US Navy NB Pearl Harbor, which were merged in 2010.  As part of Pacific Air Forces, the US Air Force 15th Wing provides strategic and tactical airlift capability to PACAF and Air Mobility Command operating the C-17 Globemaster III. It also enhances PACAF’s power and reach operating the F-22 Raptor.


Kaneohe Bay  – Located on the windward side of Oahu, approximately 12 miles (19 km) northeast of Honolulu.  The base lies between the two largest windward O’ahu communities of Kailua and Kāne’ohe, and the main gate is reached at the eastern end of Interstate H-3. Formerly MCAS, Kaneohe Bay and originally NAt Kaneohe Bay, is a U.S. Marine Corps base facility and air station located on the Mokapu Peninsula of windward O’ahu in the City & County of Honolulu.

    Hello, I see most of the posts here are pre covid, but I figure Ill give it a shot now that we are post covid.

    I am retired Navy and interested in knowing what the best chance of catching flights to Hawaii for a pinning ceremony are. Oceana is in my back yard 🙂 , desired travel dates are tail end of May to Mid June and I have plenty of schedule flexibility.

    Thanks in advance,

      I’m trying to get more COVID information on here but it changes all the time and it’s hard to keep up. I’ll do my best to answer you question. Normally AF flies to AF and Navy flies to Navy. If you check my page on Oceana you will see that they do not normally fly to Hawaii or to Travis AFB (the base with the most flights to Hawaii). Oceana does fly to North Island if you want to go there and drive to Travis. However, checking under NS Norfolk, I see they do commonly fly to Travis and even Hickam AFB HI. Those are probably your 2 closest locations so with this new information you can determine which route suits you best. Please note that all bases are not up to speed yet. They have until May 13th to get fully operational. I just checked and the new Space-A page for Norfolk is not working yet but they have been updating the old page and they just had a flight to Hickam on 4 May. The link to the old page is on the page on this site https://ujspaceainfo.com/norfolk-ns-virginia/?swcfpc=1. If you have anymore questions please ask. Good luck in your search and in your travels. If you like my response time and information, please share my site with others. Thank you for giving my website a “shot”.

    Our daughter and her husband are being stationed in Hawaii this summer. We are retired military living in Florida. What is the best way for us to travel space A to Hickam ? We once travelled from LA to Japan on Space A.

    • UJ on 30 Mar 22 at 1026

      Hopefully when Space-A resumes they will still have the constant flights from Travis AFB to Hickam AFB. Depending on where you are in Florida as to how easy it would be to get to Travis. You could just go commercial within the US and travel Space-A from Travis which is the base that flies to Hickam the most (or at least it did before COVID).

    Any trips to Hawaii on the books…..ready to go.

    • UJ on 06 Jun 19 at 1048

      From where? Most of the trips to Hawaii are via Travis AFB CA. https://www.facebook.com/travispassengerterminal/. Be sure to check out the page on this site about Hickam AFB HI and/or Travis AFB CA along with all the other pages within this site.

    I just successfully traveled to Hawaii with my wife and 3 kids on Space A travel. It is the best benefit that I have ever used as a retired Marine. We flew on a C-40 out of NAS North Island on a Monday (120 seats) and returned to Travis AFB on a KC10 (65 seats). The process was very easy but a bit stressful as you try to plan a trip with very little notice. While in Hawaii we stayed at Navy Lodge North Island, Hale Koa on Waikiki, Navy Lodge on Pearl Harbor, Kilauea Military Camp on Big Island Hawaii. All were about $100 per night and slept all 5 of us very comfortably. Feel free to email me at [email protected] for the gouge. We saved at least $3000 on our trip and had a great time. It can be done!

    My husband (retired Army) and I are trying to plan a trip from Fort Worth, TX to Hawaii. We are wanting to leave around 09/15/2018 and return around 10/15/2018. Is there any information you can give us on planning this trip please?

    • UJ on 14 Dec 17 at 1027

      Well it’s way too far in advance to plan for the flight. Schedules are only put out 72 hours in advance. However you can monitor the Fort Worth schedule to see when/if they do fly there. You can call too. They do fly to North Island CA and North Island flies to Hawaii pretty often. I think Travis AFB, up around the Sacramento area flies to Hawaii the most.
      Here is our Facebook group for Ft. Worth: https://www.facebook.com/groups/400179756706672/
      This link: http://www.msatfdd.com/Worth.htm : lists where bases *usually* fly. They are listed in order of occurrence. As you can see, Ft. Worth flies to North Island the most and they do sometimes fly to Hickam and Kaneohe Bay HI.
      Please let me know if you have anymore questions.

    HI. I would like some help planning a Space A trip. I live in Virginia and would like to go to Hawaii with my family of 3. l Currently we are active duty. Can you help?

    • UJ on 16 Mar 17 at 0834

      Yes I can help some, but it ultimately depends on when you are going and what flights are available. Although at times there are flights to Hickam AFB HI from Jacksonville, Oceana, Norfolk and Andrews, the most likely situation you need would be to get to either Travis AFB CA or North Island NAS CA. Both those places, especially Travis AFB, have the most flights to Hawaii. Now being Cat 3 (active duty) is helpful because you are in a higher category, but the sponsor must be on leave before you can sign up. That shouldn’t be a problem though. Traveling during the summer could take longer because a lot of people want to go to Hawaii then and the kids are out of school. Getting a flight from the east coast and being manifested all the way to Hawaii is the best way to go. Otherwise when you got to Travis/North Island, you would have to compete for a flight again, but again, being a Cat 3 is very helpful. Checking this site under Hawaii is also beneficial to have your lodging and maybe even transportation set for you when you arrive. If you get a flight from the east coast you can do that early because you’d know the approximate arrival time in Hawaii. If from the west coast, then it’d be best to wait until you got there to make those reservations.
      Okay, is that good? Anymore questions, because I’ll be happy to try to help in anyway that I can.

    my daughter n law had to fly home for a family emergency. She and her 2 small children. She needs to catch a ride back to hawaii where they are stationed. do you have flights going to hawaii?

    • UJ on 07 Mar 17 at 2343

      Flights from where to Hawaii? Is she military or dependent? It’s not enough information to give you an accurate answer. Also WE do not have flights. This is just a website to help plan a Space A trip. If you give me more information, I can point you in the right direction for sure.
