Hawaii Area Code

Hawaii area codes are numerical prefixes used in telephone numbers to identify specific geographic regions within the state. The primary area code for Hawaii is 808, covering all the Hawaiian Islands. An overlay of 808 was introduced to meet the growing demand for phone numbers while retaining the existing code. These area codes play a crucial role in routing telephone calls within the state.

What time zone is Hawaii?

Hawaii's area codes, including 808, follow the Hawaii-Aleutian Time Zone (HAST), which is UTC-10:00. Unlike many states, Hawaii does not observe Daylight Saving Time (DST), maintaining a consistent time offset throughout the year.

Note that the start and end dates of daylight saving time can change


Hawaii has a single area code, 808, which covers the entire state and has not been split or overlaid with additional codes. This straightforward approach has been maintained over the years, reflecting Hawaii's unique island status in the Pacific Ocean.
