Hawaii Mom Blog: Arriving Into Hilo

Arriving Into Hilo

Arriving into Hilo under the new Safe Travels Program was rather uneventful.

My flight was quite empty (I believe the cost of testing is a big deterrent for traveling inter-island). 

Upon arrival into Hilo International Airport, you get routed through the lobby (instead of going all the way through the terminal to baggage claim), where you end up going through your arrival screening.

This is where you need to pull up your QR code to get scanned, and have your ID and negative test results ready to show the screener.

I did not get asked for my printed results, but since my profile already showed a "Negative" test, the screener simply verified my ID, updated my exempt status in my profile, and I was on my way.  It was literally a two-minute process.  

I was fortunate to have sat up front of the plane, so I was immediately directed to a screener, but I'm guessing that for the most part, the wait wouldn't be too long.  

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.  

Once you arrive in Hilo - have your QR code, ID, and test results handy to make the entire process go quickly.
