American Airlines has relaunched more routes to the Caribbean, part of a broader restart of service to the region. 

The world’s largest airline officially resumed nonstop flights to Aruba from both Miami and Charlotte this weekend. 

Both of those routes are operating once daily, with the Miami-Aruba service on a Boeing 737-800 and the Charlotte-Aruba service on an Airbus A321 aircraft. 

The flight relaunch comes after Aruba reopened its borders to tourists from the United States of America last week (learn more about how to visit Aruba and the island’s new health and safety protocols here) 

On July 11, American also relaunched service to St Vincent and the Grenadines, with one daily flight on a Boeing 737-800. 

That relaunch comes after St Vincent and the Grenadines quietly reopened its borders for tourism.

St Vincent and the Grenadines is requiring all travelers to fill out a pre-arrival Travel Form (you can get it here) and show proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival. 

If you do not have a negative PCR test you will be tested on-site. If you are tested on arrival, you will have to stay in quarantine until you receive your results.

Some hotels that have reopened in St Vincent and the Grenadines include the Firefly Plantation in Bequia, the Young Island Resort off the coast of St Vincent, which just reopened over the weekend.

If you test positive, you will be required to quarantine.
