Fly Easy at LGB

Passenger With Mask

Long Beach Airport is working closely with the Long Beach Health and Human Services Department and following the State health order to ensure the health and safety of all passengers and employees. 

  • Face masks. In accordance with federal law, face masks are required when indoors for all employees, passengers, and visitors at LGB. Failure to comply with the federal mask mandate may result in removal and denial of entry; individuals may be subject to penalties under federal law. Although federal law does not require masks while outdoors in an airport, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that people who are not fully vaccinated continue wearing masks in these areas.
  • Safe Travels Hawaii Program. LGB offers two drive-thru COVID-19 testing options so that travelers may bypass the State of Hawaii's quarantine. Please note that, as of July 8, travelers may also bypass the quarantine by providing proof of vaccination. Read about the Safe Travels Hawaii program.
