The Biden administration is dropping Covid-19 testing requirements for inbound air travelers from abroad, the White House said Friday.

Airlines and other travel industry members had repeatedly pushed the administration for months to drop the requirement, arguing it was hurting international travel demand.

The rule, put in place by the Trump administration in early 2021 and later tightened by the Biden administration, required inbound travelers, including U.S. citizens, to show proof of a negative Covid test before boarding U.S.-bound flights.

Travelers entering the U.S. by land were exempt.
