American Airlines is joining Delta in offering Quarantine Free flights to Italy, with the airline offering these options on flights from New York-JFK to Milan and Rome.
The airline will operate these flights as follows:
- New York-JFK to Milan-Malpensa – Daily operation, Commences 4th April 2021
- New York-JFK to Rome-Fiumicino – Three times a week Commences 8th May 2021
Flights will be operated with a Boeing 777-200 on these routes.
Before travel, customers will need to provide proof of the required negative COVID-19 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, travellers will be able to forgo the local post-travel quarantine requirements, enabling customers to maximize their time while in Italy.
These routes are to resume after being suspended for a year.
Further preflight COVID testing
American Airlines has partnered with GoHealth Urgent Care, to offer further tests. Customers will have the option to have a PCR or Rapid Molecular COVID-19 Test at a nearby GoHealth Urgent Care centre through this collaboration. If you’re near Charlotte NC as well as other hubs, you can also access GoHealth Urgent Care’s rapid PCR test capabilities, which will give you PCR test results in approximately 30 minutes instead of waiting for a few days for the sample to be processed at a lab.
American Airlines have published the testing options at aa.com/covid19testing, covering GoHealth Urgent Care locations, LetsGetChecked and CareNow, as well as other resources to aid travellers.
Alison Taylor, American’s Chief Customer Officer said
“We’re proud to offer our customers additional options to ease travel as they begin planning their global trips once again,”
“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.”
Julie Rath, American’s Vice President of Customer Experience and Reservation said:
“Our customers trust American to help them prepare for travel, whether that’s easy access to testing through providers like GoHealth Urgent Care or through other resources like our online travel tool,”
“We hope the additional opportunity for onsite testing in many of our customers’ local communities will help them easily check off an important item in their pretravel checklist and give them more peace of mind that they’re ready to travel.”
Todd Latz, CEO of GoHealth Urgent Care said
“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,”
“We are proud to team up with American Airlines as they welcome more of their travelers safely back to the skies”.
