Kingston – The Trinidad-owned Caribbean Airlines (CAL) says it will restart flight operations between Kingston and Nassau in the Bahamas at the end of the month, reminding passengers of the various protocols that have been put in place to lessen the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
It said that all customers travelling into Jamaica must first complete an online screening and application to receive the necessary approvals for entry.
“It is imperative that on receipt of the approval email, applicants follow the additional instructions in the email. This allows them to download their travel authorisation document,” CAL said.
“This downloaded authorisation document presents the user with a unique barcode and application reference number, along with their name, date of birth and passport number, which must be presented at check-in.
“Persons who are unable to present the downloaded approval authorisation with the unique barcode may not be accepted for travel. Persons will not be allowed to travel, without meeting the requirements as outlined by the Jamaica Ministry of Health and Immigration Services,” the company added.
CAL said that its flight to Nassau would begin on July 31, after having earlier announced that its twice weekly flights between Kingston, Jamaica, Antigua and Barbados would begin on July 25, while daily flights to/from Kingston and New York resumed on July 6, 2020.
“Additionally, customers can now book daily non-stop flights between Jamaica and Miami, as well as twice weekly services from Jamaica to Toronto, available Wednesdays and Sundays.
“The reintroduction of this weekly service is part of the airline’s phased roll out of its commercial operations from its hub in Jamaica."
Many Caribbean countries serviced by CAL and other airlines had closed their borders as the region dealt with the pandemic. (CMC)
