Travelers can request two types of COVID-19 tests: on-site rapid or PCR lab send outs. Rapid test results are ready in less than 15 minutes.

“Our goal is to provide convenient and quality healthcare options to our communities,” says Lamont Tyler, DO, CareNow Medical Market Director, HCA Healthcare Far West Division. “We are proud to partner with American Airlines to offer efficient and reliable pre-flight COVID-19 testing to help ensure travelers are safe and healthy.”

Travelers may schedule an appointment by utilizing Web Check-In® at CareNow.com and selecting one of three options, including:

  • American Airlines Rapid Test (Hawaii) - specifically for Hawaii passengers due to state specific form requirements
  • American Airlines Rapid (International) - for approved destinations that allow a rapid COVID-19 test
  • American Airlines PCR lab send out (International) - for approved destinations that require a laboratory send out COVID-19 test

After completing a rapid test, people will receive a physical and electronic copy of their test results before leaving the clinic. Those taking a PCR lab send out test will receive an electronic-only copy of results. Travelers should provide proof of their test during check-in or via the VeriFLY app to show travel readiness based on completed COVID-19 requirements.
