Overview

Depart

We recommend leaving Thursday and staying overnight in Honolulu. On Friday you will depart early HNL – MAJ, and arrive in the Marshalls on Saturday 1035AM (the date change is because of the dateline). The most important thing is to get to the Honolulu airport on time! United closes the checkin about an hour before and will not let you in. We suggest getting there at 5AM. You’ll be greeted by Indies Trader staff, and board the internal Air Marshall Islands flight to the outer atoll. You’ll be greeted again by staff on the coral runway and escorted to the boat, which will take you to the Island.

Return

On your return, you will checkout Saturday morning, and have a chance to surf, before boating over to the runway. You will board the A.M.I. flight and arrive in Majuro, where you will do an overnight at Hotel Robert Reimers. On Sunday afternoon, you will head back to the Majuro airport, where you will fly to Honululu and arrive 2AM early Sunday morning. Then connect to your inter-island flight out of Honolulu.

Interisland flight into Honolulu. We suggest this overnight so you definitely do not miss your Friday morning flight.
