Molokai Airport occupies 288 acres on the central plateau of the island of Molokai. The airport has two runways that accommodate commuter/air taxi and general aviation activities, as well as some military flights.
Molokai is the fifth most populated of the eight major islands that make up the Hawaiian Islands archipelago in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
The economy has been driven primarily by cattle ranching, pineapple production, and sugar cane production, and small-scale farms.
The island is known under several names by the local population: Molokaʻi ʻĀina Momona (land of abundance), Molokaʻi Pule Oʻo (powerful prayer), and Molokaʻi Nui A Hina (of the goddess Hina).
Molokaʻi is believed to be the birthplace of the hula.
