SVG Welcomes First Commercial Flight

Saint Vincent on Saturday welcomed the first international commercial flight since the reopening of its borders.

The borders had been closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

American Airlines flight 945  from Miami touched down at Argyle International Airport about 12.59 p.m. bringing visitors and nationals home.

Various teams assisted with new arrival procedures to ensure a seamless experience navigating the enhanced safety procedures at the airport.

New Protocols for Travellers Coming to SVG published took effect on July 1 (in time for the resumption of regional and international flights): all passengers arriving in SVG during the month of July would be PCR-tested for COVID-19.

The situation would be reviewed at the end of that month to determine if the arrangements should be maintained or replaced by a system of select test on passengers from certain jurisdictions.
