U.S. Mainland travel. As of June 15, trans-pacific travelers who have been fully vaccinated within the State of Hawaii do not need to take a pre-travel test or quarantine when entering the Islands. At this time, travelers who have been vaccinated outside of the State of Hawaii must still follow the state's existing pre-travel testing program requirements. Visit our COVID-19 travel information center for full details on entering Hawaii without quarantine.

International travel. See details on the CDC’s new order. Access the Safe Travels app to submit required travel information up to 24 hours prior to your flight departure. If you’re traveling from South Korea or Japan and participating in the pre-travel testing program, ensure your test is from a trusted testing partner. Negative test results must be received prior to the final leg of travel into Hawaii. Otherwise, the State of Hawaii requires that you quarantine for 10 days or the length of your stay, whichever is shorter.

Important things to know

Don't travel if you are sick. Depending on the state or county, your temperature may be checked at the airport upon departure or arrival and those with a fever will be required to self-quarantine on the island they’ve arrived. At check-in, you will also need to confirm a self-health attestation.

Use the Hawaiian Airlines App. Use our app for a touchless check-in experience. Download our app.

Our priority boarding process has resumed. As of May 1, we will be boarding from the front of the aircraft to the rear in zone order. First Class guests can board at any time.

Bring your face mask. Face masks are required throughout your travel journey, except when eating. Our policy has changed; click here for full details.

Arrive at the airport early. We recommend arriving 1.5 hours prior to departure for travel between islands, 2.5 hours prior to departure for domestic travel and 3.5 hours prior to departure for international travel.

We're ready for you. We've reinforced and enhanced cleaning procedures and modified in-flight services to promote physical distancing. Learn more about how we are keeping you safe.

Packing tips

    You are now able to bring a 12 oz. bottle of hand sanitizer through the TSA security checkpoint in your carry-on bag.

    We recommend packing an empty reusable water bottle to fill after TSA and use on the plane as in-flight beverage service will be less frequent (to reduce contact with flight attendants).
