In September, the US government announced it will reopen to vaccinated international travelers from early November. The reopening date and the new rules have yet to be officially announced. We will update this page when details are known.

Passenger attestation form
For travel to the US, all passengers over the age of 2 must complete a short attestation form that acknowledges the requirements of a negative COVID-19 test in order to board their flight. The form must be completed before boarding and is a requirement from the CDC.
We recommend downloading the form and printing it out. If you are unable to print it out, there will be copies for you to fill out at the airport check-in desk.
