Alert: Expanding Flight Options & Pet Accommodation on Eastern Airlines, Peru (April 13, 2020)

Location: Peru (countrywide)

Event: No more U.S. Government-charter flights are scheduled.  The U.S. Embassy continues to work with multiple partners to identify options for Americans to return to the United States.  The U.S. Embassy coordinated with Eastern Airlines to offer a private charter flight from Lima, Peru, to Miami, Florida.  The upcoming flight is still tentatively scheduled for Thursday, April 16, provided a sufficient number of tickets are sold.  We are supporting Eastern Airlines with logistical advice and will continue to provide transit letters to present to Peruvian security officials at checkpoints.  Private charter airlines set their own prices, which are generally higher than the pre-COVID-19 market price.  The April 16 flight will fly direct to Miami, allow one to three pieces of luggage, and may accommodate pets.  To purchase a seat on this flight, visit https://goeasternair.com.

We urge U.S. citizens who wish to return to the United States to take advantage of all viable flight options.  If you cannot board an upcoming flight, be prepared to remain in Peru until the country’s government ends its nationwide restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

As a reminder, pharmacies and medical clinics are open and able to assist in finding local alternatives to medications.  Click here to download the embassy’s list of local medical resources.

We are working hard to bring #AmericansHome.
