Remote isolation makes Kwajalein dependant on aviation. Surface transportation to most destinations is either impractical or non-existant. Meat, produce, dairy products and mail are flown in from Hawai'i by Air Mobility Command aircraft.

Continental Micronesia (Air Mic) provides "Island Hopper" service three times per week to Honolulu, Guam, Majuro, and three destinations in the Federated States of Micronesia. Air Marshall Islands serves over 20 islands and atolls within the RMI. Scheduled military aircraft also provide passenger service between Hawai'i and Kwajalein.

Aviation support for missions is outstanding, offering maximum flexibility, unencumbered airspace for operations and FAA-operated radar air traffic control services.

Bucholz Army Airfield is also the gateway to airport to Roi-Namur, Ebeye and the rest of Kwajalein Atoll. Air Marshall Islands serves several other islands and atolls directly from Kwajalein, including Bikini and Enewetak Atolls.

A mural in the Atoll Terminal depicts all of the aircraft types used by the military at Kwajalein since WWII.
