American Airlines is expanding its current pre-flight testing programme to additional destinations, including Belize, Grenada, St. Lucia and the Hawaiian Islands.
“Our initial pre-flight testing has performed remarkably well, including terrific customer feedback about the ease and availability of testing options,” said Robert Isom, President of American Airlines. “This next phase is an invigorating step forward in American’s relentless pursuit of reopening international travel and driving industry recovery while delivering a safe and positive travel experience.”
Starting from 16 November, American will expand its partnership with LetsGetChecked, a convenient at-home testing option that includes observation by a medical professional via virtual visit, to offer at-home PCR testing to customers traveling to Belize, Grenada and St. Lucia. Results can be expected in 48 hours on average.
Additionally, the airline is also expanding its partnership with LetsGetChecked for customers travelling from Chicago, Los Angeles and Phoenix to Hawaii. This is in addition to a series of other testing options American has put in place to open travel in Hawaii.
Results can be expected in 48 hours on average, and testing must be completed within 72 hours of the final leg of departure. According to the airlines, travellers who present a negative test upon arrival will be exempt from the state’s 14-day quarantine.
