Soar into the most remote part of the United States when you fly to a jet charter airport in Midway Atoll.
Located, as the name suggests, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean approximately one-third of the way between Honolulu, Hawaii and Tokyo, Japan, Midway Atoll is the least-visited unorganized and unincorporated U.S. territory, and for good reason.
This ring-shaped barrier reef complete with multiple sand islets, namely Sand Island and Eastern Island, provides a habitat for more than 100,000 seabirds. Administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services, Midway Atoll is a National Wildlife Refuge and has been closed to visitors since 2002. Currently, there are no facilities for tourists. However, tourists who fly by private jet can coordinate with the refuge manager if they wish to visit Midway Atoll. Now, most who fly to Midway Atoll do so for business, largely as government employees in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services.
As the only island in the Hawaiian Archipelago that is not part of the state of Hawaii, Midway Atoll is best known as the location of the June 4, 1942 Battle of Midway. During the Second World War, the United States Navy defeated a Japanese attack against the islands. This battle and unanimous Ally victory was a turning point during the war in the Pacific.
When you fly to Midway Atoll, you’ll arrive at Henderson Field Midway Atoll airport. Located on Sand Island, the airport is owned by the U.S. Department of the Interior Fish and Wildlife Service.
