Location: Peru (country-wide)
Event: Senior U.S. officials maintained constant communication with the Government of Peru throughout March 24 to secure permissions for flights to land on March 25 to repatriate U.S. citizens. At 11:15PM on March 24, the U.S. Embassy received final permission for the landing of a Lima-Miami flight and a Cusco-Lima-Miami. Manifested passengers received instructions via email less than ten minutes after the flights were approved. We continue to engage at the highest level to ensure that repatriation flights continue so that we can get our U.S. citizens home to their families and friends.
We understand the quarantine makes movements to the airport difficult. The U.S. Embassy continues to negotiate those details with the Peruvian government and local authorities so that U.S. Citizens have safe and unhindered passage to the airports.
