Correct, but there is no mention of any commercial flights at this time.

Don't get me started on the local grocery store and some people all 'geared up", acting invincible and like fools in some cases

Cancelling is frustrating. Had to cancel November and rebooked to April. Had to cancel April and just rebooked to September.

Bob,

We were due to arrive today so I hear you loud and clear. Hope things are good with you and hope you will be able to keep those September plans. We have visited that time of year in the past and as long as no 'big storms' were brewing we found it to be a very pleasant and low-key time to be there.


Respectfully,

pat

Emirates Airlines conducting at airport antibody blood tests with rapid results before flights. This is a good first step.

Bring it on and let’s get back to work and play.

Only what has been previously posted. Some still think trips in later May will happen, I think differently. According to a letter from the airport, possibly June 1-9 but that is all contingent on how things progress. Since Dutch SXM added 3 weeks to the controlled movement, or what ever you want to call it, you have to allow for plans both in SXM and in the US for travel to start back up.

The airport technically is operational, just NO commercial flights scheduled at this time, regardless of what US based airline schedules might indicate.

Sadly, there is no definitive answer as to a specific date. Only speculation at this time.

Trust me, as soon as there is any credible information on it. it will be posted here. Thanks.

Thank you, glad to help. I wish there was more definitive information but under the circumstances there are way too many variable. It appears the SXM PM is taking a pretty cautious approach, which is not a bad thing in the grand scheme of things.
