United will offer Covid-19 testing for Hawaii-bound passengers beginning October 15 out of San Francisco, in a pilot testing program that the airline hopes to extend to other destinations.

(CNN) — United Airlines will become the first US airline to offer coronavirus testing to some of its passengers.

In a pilot testing program that the airline plans to extend to other destinations, United will offer testing for Hawaii-bound passengers beginning October 15 out of San Francisco.

The testing will help passengers avoid an otherwise mandatory 14-day quarantine in Hawaii.

United's move corresponds with Hawaii's announcement of a pre-travel testing program beginning on October 15.

The new rules would allow visitors to avoid the previously mandatory 14-day quarantine "if they are tested no earlier than 72 hours before their flight arrives with an FDA-approved nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT)," according to the state's announcement.

United plans to expand customer testing to other destinations and US airports later this year, according to the airline's announcement.
