TULSA, Okla. –

American Airlines has announced it has partnered with several governments in offering pre-flight COVID-19 testing for international flights.

American says their goal is to protect customers and inspire confidence in air travel.

“The pandemic has changed our business in ways we never could have expected, but all the while, the entire American Airlines team has eagerly tackled the challenge of reimagining the way we deliver a safe, healthy and enjoyable travel experience for our customers,” said Robert Isom, President of American Airlines. “Our plan for this initial phase of preflight testing reflects the ingenuity and care our team is putting into rebuilding confidence in air travel, and we view this as an important step in our work to accelerate an eventual recovery of demand.”

The company testing will begin in October with flights to Jamaica and the Bahamas and says it plans to expand the program to additional destinations in the next few weeks and months. American Airlines says they have also been working with the government of Hawaii to develop a series of options that fit the Hawaiian requirements for travel to the state.
