Flying to Hawaii

“Travelers who, upon entry into the state, provide written confirmation from a state approved COVID-19 testing facility of a negative test result from a test administered to the traveler within 72 hours from the final leg of departure, will be exempt from the 10-day mandatory quarantine.”  – Now USA, Canada and Japan options!

Learn more about Hawaii’s Pre-Travel Testing Program

IMPORTANT:  Per Governor Ige’s 13th Supplemental Proclamation, Visitors who require quarantine may NOT quarantine in a vacation rental.  The only paid accommodations where you can quarantine is in a hotel/motel.  This means you will need to have your negative test results to ensure you can go into a vacation rental without quarantining.

You must have a negative test from an approved Partner BEFORE boarding the transpacific flight to avoid quarantine.  You may no longer arrive and still wait for your test result.

With an ability to bypass quarantine with a negative test, airlines have been responding by adding additional flights non-stop to Kona (KOA). We’ve seen flights for as low as $149 one-way !

For even more options, consider flying through Honolulu (HNL), and taking a quick connector over to KOA for your stay on the Big Island.

We’ll be updating this list weekly.  Let us know if you find a great deal or flight combination and we can add it to our list!

Safe travels and see you soon!
