Though now is not the time to travel, some international travelers were left stranded by immediate border closures and government travel restrictions. To date, Belize has not reported any new coronavirus cases since April 13, 2020. Understandably so, most are scrambling to return home on a repatriation flight during the COVID-19 pandemic. This week, United Airlines, along with the US Embassy Belize, announced their last likely repatriation flight for May 7th, 2020. As of May 4th, the airline now requires all passengers to wear face masks for safety precautions.

United is the only U.S. airline with a full-time, on-site medical director, who has been on the front lines of the COVID-19 outbreak. Additionally, United Airlines has notably been leading the charge with repatriation flights amid border closures. The company continues to work alongside the US Embassy Belize for what may be their last scheduled repatriation flight. So far, United has brought over 4,500 Americans home, and is still planning more flights in coordination with government officials. Airlines continue to be essential to the travel industry, despite the financial losses they’ve taken during the pandemic.
Despite demand plummeting for regular service, airlines have taken it upon themselves to bring their country’s citizens back home. Through countless repatriation flights, the major U.S. carriers are helping reunite families and bring people back together again.” – Zach Griff
