There’s no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly spreading around the country. And to help flatten the curve more, Hawaii is implementing an intra-state travel quarantine.
With new quarantine orders in place, a shelter-in-place order on two islands, and vastly reduced service from Hawaiian Airlines, it comes as no surprise that Hawaii hotels are suspending operations.
Following Hawaii Governor Ige’s order mandating a quarantine for any person arriving in the State of Hawaii, the state’s largest carrier announced that Hawaiian Airlines is to cease most flights this week.
With the pandemic situation worsening, Hawaii’s Governer announced new Hawaii travel restrictions, while Ko Olina Resort announced that it’s closing to the general public.
Virtually every airline right now is allowing customers to make changes during specific timeframes free of charge. But, Southwest already allows this, so they’re taking things a step further – Southwest is waiving fare differences AND is extending expiration dates!
For whatever reason, people are still arriving in Hawaii en mass for spring break. So, let’s talk about more reasons to not come to Hawaii right now. You know, besides the obvious, pandemic-related reasons.
