USA. It takes at least two days from mainland USA. It is best to stop for a couple of days in Hawaii in order to rest before the long leg of the flight. From Hawaii, you will stop twice in the Marshall Islands and then fly into Pohnpei. - Jul 2021

The USA. You will have to travel via Hawaii and Guam or Hawaii to the Marshall Islands on an "island hopper." You would be wise to stop for a few days in Hawaii as the trip takes about two days total. - Apr 2021

Washington, DC. It's a very long trip to get to Pohnpei. Travel takes about two days, maybe longer. Flights and connections are sporadic and expensive. - Mar 2020

It takes at least 30 hours to get to DC and sometimes upwards of 40 to 50 hours, depending on connections. From Pohnpei, the only way to get out is west to Chuuk and then north to Guam, or east through Kosrae, Kwajelein, Majuro and Honolulu. Flying times in the Pacific should be measured in days rather than hours. - Feb 2013
