American Airlines Expands Preflight Testing Program to Belize
Belize City, Tuesday, November 3, 2020: The Belize Tourism Board (BTB) is pleased to announce that American Airlines is expanding its current preflight testing program to additional destinations, including Belize, further opening the world for customers who want to travel.
Starting November 16th, American Airlines 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. Results can be expected in 48 hours on average. This is welcomed news as visitors are encouraged to take a COVID-19 PCR test within 72 hours of travel to Belize.
“Our initial preflight 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.”
American Airlines is currently operating service to BZE from its Miami (MIA) hub and in December the carrier will increase its service to also include Charlotte (CLT) and Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW)
