American Airlines resumed operations on Tuesday in the Dominican Republic with flights between Miami International Airport (MIA) and its four destinations in the country, after the suspension of service in March due to travel restrictions due to coronavirus (COVID-19) .
“American has a long-term commitment to the Dominican Republic, celebrating 45 years of operations in the country this year, and we are proud to resume our flights today to our four destinations in the country: Puerto Plata, Punta Cana, Santiago and Santo Domingo, Said Oliver Bojos, director of operations for American in the Dominican Republic.
“American’s top priority continues to be the safety and well-being of our customers and our team, and we have a strong focus on following the latest guidance from health experts and government authorities. We want our customers to feel safe traveling with us and we look forward to welcoming them at our airports and on board our aircraft in the near future. ”
Following worldwide flight suspensions, American continued to fly a limited operation from Miami to the Caribbean, with flights to San Juan (SJU), St. Thomas (STT) and St. Croix (STX), and in June restarted its operations in Antigua (ANU) and Jamaica (KIN and MBJ). In addition to its flights to the Dominican Republic, American also resumed operations today from MIA to four other destinations in the Caribbean, including Port-au-Prince (PAP) and Eleuthera (ELH), Georgetown (GGT) and Nassau (NAS) in the Bahamas. . In the coming weeks, the airline also plans to relaunch its service to Aruba (AUA), Providenciales (PLS), St. Lucia (UVF), St. Maarten (SXM) and St. Vincent (SVD).
American’s commitment to cleanliness is multi-layered
As American has continued to summarize more flights over the summer, the airline is taking several new steps regarding the well-being and safety of customers and team members. These include creating a new Traveler Health Advisory Group that includes the renowned Vanderbilt University Medical Center to advise on health and cleanliness issues as travelers return during the summer.
American also announced that it is working with the Biorisk Global Advisory Council for GBAC STARTM Accreditation (GBAC STAR) for its aircraft fleet and VIP lounges for its customers. GBAC STAR accreditation demonstrates that proper cleaning and disinfection practices, procedures, and work systems are in place to prepare for, respond to, and recover from pandemics.
The airline has implemented multiple layers of protection for clients including clean airports and planes, ensuring the health of team members and requirements for clients to wear facial coverage.
