Two airlines have been offering COVID-19 drive-through screening for travelers flying into Hawaii from Mineta San Jose International Airport since last week.
Alaska and Hawaiian Airlines have partnered with two different companies to offer pre-flight testing in the airport’s taxi staging area at 2470 Airport Blvd. in San Jose, according to airport officials.
Individuals flying on Alaska Airlines must present their flight schedule and pay $ 170 to be tested by Carbon Health. Results will be shared through passengers’ Carbon Health accounts and uploaded to the Hawaii Safe Travels Program website. They are expected to arrive at 2 p.m. the next day.
Hawaiian Airlines passengers are offered $ 90 worth of tests through WorkSite Labs, which can be scheduled on the airline’s COVID-19 website at www.schedulecovidtesting.com.
Individuals must book tests no earlier than 72 hours before the departure time of the last leg of their journey. According to airport spokesman Keonnis Taylor, Carbon Health will start offering tests for all passengers starting next week.
