Loyalty program members with Hawaiian Airlines will now be able to redeem miles for a pre-travel COVID-19 test.

HawaiianMiles members across the United States can redeem 14,000 HawaiianMiles to order a mail-in test kit by Vault Health, a state of Hawai‘i trusted testing partner.

“We remain dedicated to making testing for our guests as convenient and accessible as possible, so we’re incredibly pleased to extend our partnership with Vault Health to allow our HawaiianMiles members to purchase their at-home test kit with miles,” said Avi Mannis, senior vice president of marketing at Hawaiian Airlines.

The redemption offer will be available to HawaiianMiles members for a limited time only. Members who choose to redeem their miles for a test kit will receive a confirmation email which includes a link to order the COVID-19 mail-in test kit from the Vault Health website.

“Our at-home supervised saliva COVID test provides a safe, convenient and reliable result delivered pre-travel,” said Vault Health Founder and CEO Jason Feldman. “We are excited to work with Hawaiian Airlines who continues to innovate on behalf of their customers making travel easier and safer for everyone.”

The test kit, which is available for travelers of all ages including children, will be mailed to guests who will self-collect their saliva sample with assistance from a testing supervisor in a video call. The kit is then express shipped to a lab, which will process and analyze the sample and provide travelers their results electronically within 24 hours of receiving the sample for an overall turnaround time under 72 hours.
