(01 Apr 2021) Travellers on flights marketed and operated by American Airlines from New York City (JFK) to Milan (MXP) and from JFK to Rome (FCO) will enjoy quarantine-free travel when service returns in the coming days and weeks.
American resumes daily service to MXP 4 April and thrice weekly service to FCO on 8 May, after being suspended for a year.
The airline will operate both routes with Boeing 777-200 aircraft.
Prior to travel, customers will need to provide proof of the required negative COVID19 test. Based on current Italian rules, upon arrival in Milan or Rome and after taking a second test at the airport producing a negative result, travelers will be able to forgo the local post-travel quarantine requirements, enabling customers to maximize their time while in Italy.
“We’re proud to offer our customers additional options to ease travel as they begin planning their global trips once again,” said Alison Taylor, American’s Chief Customer Officer. “We’ve worked closely with local authorities and testing providers to ensure we continue to provide world-class safety, confidence and comfort, and we look forward to welcoming our customers onboard soon.”
American’s customers now have access to in-person testing at more than 150 local urgent care facilities or hospitals through GoHealth Urgent Care.
Customers will have the option to have a PCR or Rapid Molecular COVID-19 Test at a nearby GoHealth Urgent Care center through this collaboration.
Soon, customers near American’s hub in Charlotte, North Carolina, and in other markets, will be able to access GoHealth Urgent Care’s rapid PCR test capabilities, which will give customers PCR test results in approximately 30 minutes instead of waiting for a few days for the sample to be processed at a lab.
“Our network of conveniently located, on-demand care centers and virtual capabilities have uniquely positioned us to provide critical support to communities and industries across the country during the pandemic,” said Todd Latz, CEO of GoHealth Urgent Care. “We are proud to team up with American Airlines as they welcome more of their travelers safely back to the skies.”
