This WestJet program allows Canadians to skip Hawaii's quarantine on arrival

Negative virus test required for Hawaii travelers

At the same time Gov. David Ige revealed the addition of Canada to Safe Travels Hawaii, Ige also announced that the testing protocols for all travelers are being tightened.

Plus, you can skip quarantine in the island state with a negative COVID-19 test.

"We're adding this safety precaution now in response to the dramatically increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the continental United States and around the world", he said.

You need to have been tested and received a negative result within 72 hours of the plane's departure.

Starting mid-December, travellers flying from Canada to Hawaii may bypass Hawaii's quarantine if they take a COVID-19 test from labs approved and identified by either airline.

The new policy applies to domestic transpacific flights and global flights departing from locations in which the State of Hawaiʻi pre-testing programs are in place.

"Many Canadians love to visit Hawaiʻi during the winter months to escape the cold weather, so the timing for this works well. With pre-departure and arrivals testing now available through the collaborative efforts of the Governments of Canada, the Government of Alberta and the YYC Calgary International Airport, our guests have a wonderful opportunity to enjoy safe and enjoyable travel without the rigorous quarantine requirements". Passengers will then be required to display their negative test result prior to boarding.

"We welcome Gov. Ige's announcement today designating Air Canada as one of Hawaiʻi's Trusted Travel partners and extending the State of Hawaiʻi's pre-travel testing program to Air Canada's customers".

Earlier this week, WestJet announced its December schedule including twice-weekly, nonstop Dreamliner service between Calgary and Honolulu, and Calgary and Maui. "We have long advocated for safe and science-based strategies over blanket quarantines to enable a safe and secure resumption of air travel".

Also starting on Tuesday, passengers seeking a quarantine waiver must have the results of their test before boarding their flight. Although the test, which costs $150 per person and is payable by the guest, is now only available in Alberta, it is open to all Canadian residents.

Canadian nationals traveling overseas are still subject to a 14-day quarantine upon their return to the country.

Ige said the change responds to concern from county officials that COVID-positive passengers were arriving in Hawaii.
