Hawaii is rabies free. Hawaii’s quarantine law is designed to protect residents and animals from potentially serious health problems associated with the introduction and spread of rabies. All dogs, regardless of age or purpose, must comply with Hawaii’s import requirements.

If your flight is diverted to a Hawaii location other than your scheduled destination, a Southwest Airlines Customer Service Agent will meet your inbound flight and ensure your animal remains in the gate area until you have boarded the flight to your final destination.
