WestJet expands pre-travel Hawaii testing to Ontario

WestJet has announced it has collaborated with LifeLabs in Ontario to offer State of Hawaii-approved pre-departure testing. A negative COVID test within 72-hours of departure will exempt the guest from the state’s required 14-day quarantine.

Through its FlyClear™ program, LifeLabs will provide WestJet guests with a convenient online method to book a COVID-19 test online at a participating Shoppers Drug Mart across Ontario ahead of traveling to Hawaii.

Those wishing to book a pre-departure test from Ontario can do so through LifeLabs for $199 plus tax, payable by the guest, by visiting LifeLabs.com/FlyClear. All information on WestJet’s testing offers and processes can be found at westjet.com/covidtesting.

Guests traveling to Hawaii are responsible for ensuring they receive a test within 72-hours of their flight departing to Hawaii in order to avoid quarantine and will be required to display their negative test result prior to boarding. If test results are not available before boarding the final leg of the trip, the traveller must quarantine for 14 days or the length of the stay, whichever is shorter.

All visitors intending to visit Hawaii must register prior to travel: Hawaii entrance requirements are found at https://hawaiicovid19.com/travel/
