Airlines in Canada and the United States are resuming flights to Latin American destinations, apparently convinced that the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic has passed.
Operators resuming flights include Air Canada, Delta and American Airlines. The resumption will significantly increase the frequency of flights between North and South American destinations.
Delta Air Lines announced plans to operate daily flights between Detroit and Cancun (Mexico). In addition, the carrier will resume four-time weekly flights to Monterrey starting September 6. The carrier is already offering frequent flights between Detroit and Mexico City.
Meanwhile, American Airlines has begun operating three flights daily between Guayaquil (Ecuador) and Miami. Reports suggest that American Airlines is the only carrier running flights between Miami and Guayaquil.
Panamanian carrier Copa Airlines announced that it will restart flights between Panama City and Boston.
From October 30 onwards, Air Canada will run flights from Toronto to Cozumel, a scenic island off Mexico’s Caribbean coast. The new route will begin with a weekly flight, but Air Canada plans to increase frequency to three a week.
