American Airlines has kicked off its latest relaunch of service to the Caribbean, this time with a pair of nonstop routes to the Turks and Caicos Islands. 

The Turks and Caicos Islands officially relaunched its tourism sector on July 22, and American Airlines is now flying two nonstop routes to the destination. 

That includes a pair of daily flights from Miami International Airport, along with three weekly flights from Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

The Miami flights depart at 10:50 AM and 12:15 AM, respectively. 

The Charlotte flights, which are operating on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, depart at 9:39 AM, according to the company’s Web site.

The moves are part of a wider relaunch to the Caribbean that the world’s largest airline began earlier this month. 

So what do travelers to Turks and Caicos need to know?

Every visitor must present proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken no more than five days prior to arrival in the destination. 

That’s along with medical insurance that covers Medevac.
