United Airlines to Offer Coronavirus Testing for Passengers

United Airlines is set to become the first American airline to offer coronavirus testing for its passengers.

The testing will be offered for Hawaii-bound passengers Oct. 15 out of San Francisco, with the test helping passengers avoid a 14-day required quarantine, CNN reported.

United said it will use a rapid, 15-minute test by Abbott and offer customers a mail-in option that can be done days before departure, CNN reported.

Hawaii has had 70 percent fewer flights, 91 percent less TSA checkpoint traffic and 94 percent less travel during the pandemic, CNN reported, citing statistics from Airlines for America.

As of Thursday, the U.S. has roughly 7 million coronavirus cases and 202,000 deaths, according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker.
