DFS Group has re-opened two of its stores in Maui’s Kahului Airport. All five DFS stores in the airport temporarily closed at some point during the pandemic, but with the recent relaxation of pandemic measures in Hawaii and the resumption of some flights from Maui to the US mainland and Canada, DFS has re-opened the two Kahului Trading Company stores beginning March 15. These stores will be open from 5pm to 10pm daily to service departing flights. The Kahului Trading Company stores specialize in local and locally made products including cookies, chocolates and souvenirs.

“We are excited to welcome travelers back to two of our Kahului Airport stores, and to see some flights resume as health conditions stabilize,” said Martin Matthews, DFS Managing Director North America. “Hawaii remains one of our most important locations, and we remain steadfastly committed to the state. We look forward to resuming normal operations and serving local and international customers as soon as we can.”
