Starting February 18, travelers on select flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) through Delta Air Lines and United Airlines can enroll and use the Clear Health Pass system to securely link their negative COVID-19 test results to their verified identity before traveling.

The pilot program, allowing a third party to facilitate pre-travel testing verification alongside the state’s Safe Travels program, will create an easier and more seamless travel experience, Clear said in a press release.

Instead of the mandatory 10-day quarantine, travelers may provide a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of their Hawaii-bound flight through Clear’s Health Pass app.

“Safe travel is important for our residents and visitors, and this pilot program is another step forward in achieving this goal,” said Hawaii Gov. David Ige. “I thank Clear and its airline partners who are working together to provide a convenient pre-travel testing option for both returning residents and those who are coming to Hawaii for work or vacation.”

“Clear is about making life easier and safer. That is why we are thrilled to team up with Hawaii to help create a seamless and safe travel experience as they continue to welcome back visitors,” said Clear CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker. “Whether it is with sports, work or travel, our innovative Health Pass solution is helping people get back to what they know, love and miss.”

Clear says its Health Pass will help generate economic impact through tourism while helping to maintain the health of the local community, safely bringing people back to what they know and love while helping reimagine the future of sports, work, and travel.

Health Pass is a free, mobile experience by Clear, which securely connects a person’s verified identity to multiple layers of COVID-19 related insights, including vaccination results, to reduce public health risk. Clear offers passengers traveling to Honolulu additional lab options for Hawaii’s Safe Travel COVID-19 test requirement.

Health Pass users will be able to find a convenient testing option, among Clear’s large nationwide network of healthcare entities, labs and at-home testing options.

Trust and transparency is Clear’s number one priority, and with Health Pass, users are always in control of their health data. More than 35 organizations are currently using Health Pass to create safer environments, including the National Hockey League, MGM Resorts, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, and many more.
