A Honolulu area code is an asset to any business looking to expand in Hawaii. Purchase area code 808 for your company from Nextiva.
Are you ready to expand into the Honolulu area code? Nextiva can help you access the local economy in the biggest city in the Aloha State. Honolulu has an estimated population of 359,000 people and covers 68 square miles on the island of Oahu. Area code 808 encompasses Honolulu and the entire Hawaiian islands, meaning your business will have access to over 1.3 million people in the state.
The city is located on Waikiki beach on the southern part of the island and has a large airport for easy access to the rest of the state, the US, and Asia. The Honolulu area code is important because it’s the capital city of Hawaii, and because it is the westernmost city in the United States.
Hawaii was annexed by the US in 1898, and Honolulu was incorporated as a city in 1907. However, Hawaii didn’t officially become a state until 1959. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, subsequently starting the US involvement in World War II, is one of their most important roles in the country’s history. The economy and population of the city truly began to grow when Hawaii was granted statehood, and tourism brings millions to the city every year.
Tourism is the most lucrative industry in the Honolulu area code, and over 7.6 million visitors come into the state of Hawaii annually. The Waikiki neighborhood and beach is the tourism center of the state and a popular jumping off point to see the rest of the islands.
There are no Fortune 500 companies in the state, but all three Fortune 1000 companies that have a headquarters in Hawaii are located in Honolulu. They are Hawaiian Holdings, an air transport business, Hawaiian Electric Industries, and Matson, a Pacific Ocean shipping company.
Other top employers in area code 808 include Altres Industrial, a staffing company, Kapiolani Medical Center, Queens Medical Center, Hawaii Health Systems Corp, and the Hawaii State Police Department. Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam is a US Naval and Air Force base located in the Honolulu area code and is the headquarters of the US Pacific Fleet.
The unemployment rate in area code 808 is 3.6%, which is significantly lower than the national average of 5.2%, and future job growth is projected at over 40%. The average household income in the Honolulu area code is $60,000, coming in higher than the US average of $53,000. More than a quarter of the population in Honolulu makes over $100,000 per year. The three largest occupations in the city are accommodation, food services, health care and social assistance, and retail trade.
Honolulu is important because it’s the second most populous city in Polynesia following Auckland, New Zealand. The Honolulu area code was chosen as #2 on the list of “Safest Cities in America” by US SmartAsset in 2015. In 2017 it was also ranked #17 in the “Global Liveability Index” by the Economist Intelligence Unit, and #1in the United States. The city also hosts many festivals and events throughout the year.
