Eastern Airlines Flight EZE-MIA March 26, 2020

Just received from US Embassy Buenos Aires
Location:
Argentina



Event: Eastern Airlines has announced it will operate a direct flight from Buenos Aires to Miami, Florida on March 26 from Ministro Pistarini International Airport (Ezeiza). U.S. citizens interested in departing on this flight will need to book directly with Eastern Airlines.



Please monitor https://goeasternair.com for the latest information on the flight and ticket availability. The flight is subject to change. This is not a U.S. government-operated or funded flight. The Embassy is liaising with Eastern to provide travel information to U.S. citizens. As we have additional information on this or other departure opportunities, we will notify registered U.S. citizens through STEP.



You must organize your own domestic transportation to the airport. The government of Argentina has indicated that travelers attempting to return to their home countries should be able to do so despite the national quarantine. Carry your confirmed ticket and a copy of the letters mentioned on our webpage (https://ar.usembassy.gov/covid-19/) to help facilitate your travel to the airport.



You may be stopped at checkpoints on their way to the airport. U.S. citizens should use the two letters to explain their purpose of travel to the checkpoint authorities. If you are unsuccessful in transiting through the checkpoint, call the Embassy’s emergency phone line listed on the Embassy Letter while you are still at the checkpoint. However, to avoid unnecessary delays, foreign non-residents should not circulate on Argentine roads and attempt to reach Buenos Aires Ministro Pistarini International Airport (Ezeiza) at night. Each province has its own regulations regarding COVID-19 when carrying out inspections at provincial borders, and nighttime clearance at such checkpoints cannot be guaranteed. Plan on making your way to Buenos Aires by day.



If you have not previously expressed interest in returning to the United States and find yourself unable to reach Buenos Aires Ministro Pistarini International Airport from the provinces, go to https://ar.usembassy.gov/covid-19 and follow the instructions for doing so. Note your difficulty traveling in the "special needs" box.



If you have previously expressed interest and are still unable to arrange transportation to Buenos Aires Ministro Pistarini International Airport (Ezeiza) from the provinces, you should follow the instructions on our webpage to send a second e-mail, noting your difficulty arranging transportation. Please include the phrase SECOND EMAIL at the beginning of that subject line.



At this time, this is the only direct way to travel between Argentina and the United States. If you need to leave Argentina, you should strongly consider booking this flight.



U.S. citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period.



In the United States, passengers may be subject to CDC screening, health observation, and monitoring requirements upon reentry to the United States. For additional questions, visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's COVID-19 Information for Travel page.



The Department of State has issued a Global Level 4 Health Advisory for COVID-19.

Due to the difficulties in traveling from the provinces to Buenos Aires in time for any potential international flight, the U.S. Embassy encourages all U.S. citizens remaining in the provinces who want to depart Argentina on this or any other flight to travel to Buenos Aires as soon as possible.
