Spirit and American Airlines decided to extend the suspension of their services until July 5 and 7, respectively.

The airlines began to suspend flights in Nicaragua as of March 23, five days after authorities from the Ministry of Health confirmed the first case of Covid-19.

The first to suspend flights was Avianca on March 23, followed by Spirit on March 24, and later American Airlines on March 27.

The United States embassy in Managua alerted its citizens in the country on staying safe and that American Airlines company extended the suspension of regular service from Managua to the United States until July 7, 2020.

It also reported that “several other airlines have also changed the dates for the resumption of service to and from Nicaragua.”

According to Embassy information, the only airline that has not announced its reopening is Delta, which maintains its services suspended indefinitely.

Testing required

The government of Daniel Ortega announced mid-April that the Nicaraguan immigration authorities will require tourists and passengers arriving in the country to test the Covid-19 as a preventive measure.

Likewise, external sources reported the closure of the air terminal in Managua, despite the fact that the government has not officially notified the closure of air and land borders.
