As interstate traveling restrictions ease, Oakland International Airport announced Thursday that it is offering multiple daily flights to Hawaii and pre-travel coronavirus testing for passengers.
Hawaiian Airlines is providing daily flights to Honolulu, Kahului and Lihue. Southwest Airlines will have twice daily flights to Honolulu and Kahului and daily flights to Kailua-Kona and Lihue.
Covid-19 pre-travel tests are only available to those flying nonstop on these airlines from Oakland International Airport to the Hawaiian Islands.
There are several testing options at the airport, including on a “walk-up” basis and by appointment at the two airport testing locations.
Travelers need to have a negative test within 72-hours of departure to be exempt from a supervised quarantine upon arrival.
Oakland International Airport is the only airport certified by the Hawaii State Department of Health as a Trusted Testing Travel Partner, airport officials said.
