    Lines for COVID-19 test form at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.

The City and County of Honolulu are expanding their COVID-19 testing hours at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in response to increased demand.

Starting Wednesday, the airport testing site in the Diamond Head Tour group area will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The site will continue normal hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. all other days.

“With the omicron variant consistently creating record numbers of infections on Oahu, we are very pleased to provide more opportunities for the public to get tested,” Mayor Rick Blangiardi said in a press release. “Mahalo to the National Kidney Foundation of Hawaii for working with us and bringing this vital resource to people in the city and county of Honolulu. Testing is especially important with the omicron variant because many people are asymptomatic and the test informs them if they test positive, allowing them to take precautions to prevent further spread in our community.

Testing at Honolulu Airport is funded by the city and managed by Hawaii’s National Kidney Foundation. Free antigen testing is offered to all Oahu residents, Honolulu County employees and first responders.
