		New testing deal will allow Canadian passengers to avoid quarantine in Hawaii

The test must show a negative result within 72 hours of departure.

Those who arrive without having their negative test results before departure will not be able to skip quarantine, even if their negative results become available shortly after they arrive.

Gov. Ige also announced that beginning in mid-December, travelers flying from Canada to Hawaiʻi may bypass the state's mandatory 14-day quarantine if they take a COVID-19 test from labs identified by Air Canada and WestJet. If test results are not available before boarding the final leg of the trip, the traveller must quarantine for 14 days or the length of the stay, whichever is shorter. Hawaii normally experiences an increase in visitors during the time period many Americans have time off from work and school.

WestJet announced today that it will offer a pre-flight coronavirus (COVID-19) testing program for guests travelling to the Hawaiian Islands. "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".

Governor David Ige announced Thursday that anyone flying to Hawaii must have a negative COVID-19 test result prior to boarding a flight to the state. "We look forward to welcoming travelers from Canada and ask them to visit with aloha, following health and safety protocols and taking part in voluntary post-arrival testing to ensure that they are free of COVID-19", said Mayor Michael P. Victorino, Maui County.

"The resumption of transpacific travel from Canada will strengthen Hawai'i's gradual economic recovery; and HTA extends its gratitude to Air Canada, WestJet and to all of our travel partners across Canada". This is why I am supportive of our teams move to require test results before people depart for Hawai'i.

WestJet will begin the testing program in partnership with DynaLIFE in Alberta for guests holding a WestJet-ticketed itinerary to Hawaii within 72 hours.

Air Canada has routes from Vancouver to Maui and Honolulu starting on December 17 and routes from Calgary to Maui starting the next day. "So now it's safe to travel on both sides of the border - we've really managed to reduce quarantines for our guests".

7,217 passengers in quarantine (non-trusted travel partner or incorrect type of test).

The testing, which costs $150 CAD per person and is payable by the guest, is now only available in Alberta, the testing is open to all Canadian residents. "It's really exciting for us to know that Hawaii really is the very first place that is a safe corridor for travel from Canada". Those who failed to do so were required to quarantine for 14 days after their arrival.
