Passengers in Saba and St. Eustatius will have an option to use Windward Islands Airways International Winair to transit to St. Maarten to catch this flight, which is arranged by the US Consulate General in Curaçao.
Passengers in Saba and Statia should contact the US Consulate immediately at email address ACSCuracao@state.gov to receive additional instructions for those Winair flights.
Persons interested in returning to the United States from St. Maarten, Statia and Saba are urged to take advantage of this flight. US citizens should return immediately to the United States unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period. The US government cannot guarantee the ability to arrange flights indefinitely, it was stated.
“In the past, our charter flights have sold out well before the departure date, so it is in your best interest to purchase these tickets immediately before they sell out,” the US Consulate General said.
Due to the current travel guidelines in the United States, persons who have been in China, Iran, or certain European countries within 14 days prior to this flight will not be allowed to board.
Passengers are reminded that regular services at the airports, such as food services and water fountains, are closed.
