U.S.A. Hawaii First Passenger Flight Arrival from Japan After Relaxation of Quarantine Standards November 7, 12:07
The U.S. state of Hawaii relaxed quarantine standards for Japanese tourists and other tourists, and after easing at Honolulu’s airport, the first passenger flight from Japan arrived, and about 60 passengers entered Hawaii.
As the infection of the new coronavirus improved, the state of Hawaii eased quarantine standards for visitors to Hawaii, and after the 6th, it was decided not to ask for a 14-day self-isolation if the virus test that met the state’s standards had confirmed the negative in advance, such as tourists from Japan.
On the morning of June 6, the first All Nippon Airways passenger flight arrived at Honolulu’s airport from Haneda Airport, and about 60 passengers immediately entered Hawaii.
A woman who is studying in Hawaii said, “I had an inspection in Tokyo on the morning of the boarding day, and I got the results just before I got on. It was smoother than I thought.”
A woman who came to see her aunt in Hawaii said, “I checked it on the state site, took an inspection, and received the results the next day. I want to meet my relatives as soon as possible and talk about various things and relax.”
On the other hand, when people who visit Hawaii for sightseeing return to Japan, in addition to testing for the new coronavirus, they are required to wait at home for 14 days after arrival.
Mitsue Varley, Japan’s bureau chief of the Hawaii Tourism Bureau, said, “We are required to wait after returning to Japan, and while flights between Hawaii and Japan are limited, traffic will not increase rapidly. I think the recovery in tourism in Hawaii will be gradual.”
