This was posted yesterday Protocolo para reactivar los servicios aeros on JAC's website.

So temperature check on arrival and if a passenger has a temperature superior to 38 Celsius or other symptoms, they will be subjected to a Covid 19 rapid test. The use of mask will be mandatory within the premises of the airport, among others measures.....It seems to me that airports will be cleaner and less chaotics.:)

New: formulario de declaración jurada de Salud :unsure:
I don't understand the point of temperature checks when you pass this virus when you're asymptomatic. When it arrived from China those people passed the temperature checks and boarded planes to become symptomatic days later.

How about this, eh?


Someone is smoking the drapes again. No Cdn airlines have announced any intention of flying to the DR on a regular basis and until that happens there will be no Cdn tourists here

You can fly from Canada via Miami or NY, found a flight for $400. But yes, until the Canadian tour operators and airlines return, there won't be masses of Canadians arriving.

The protocols are a joke. Other than distancing and masks. How is flying in a pressurized cabin part of a protocol to avoid Covid-19. Think about that for a minute. I agree.

Wear a properly fitted N95 mask during your travel time and you should be ok. Don't touch your face as well. When you get to your house, hotel, or apartment, strip and shower.

In a ideal word, everyone should be tested on arrivals or better pre-boarding, but that's just impossible.

I have 6 people in my family who tested positive to the virus and a couple of friends as well, none of them had flown recently (mind you they are all home with a bad cold, others have/had barely any symptoms, 0 were hospitalized). Among quite a few people I know who flew, nada. The only person I know who passed away from COVID-19, was in his 30s but not exactly in the best health as he was close to 400 lbs.

I have been tested once for both COVID and antibody, both were negative. I will do a test again a couple days before I fly.

So, Yes, I thought about it, will take necessary precautions (masks, distancing) and continue to "live".

Of course, everyone else is free to do as they please based on their experiences and health.

Thank you for coming to my TED Talk 💃

The protocols should be if somebody tests positive on arrival they get government quarantined for 14 days.

Probably impossible to do but that would detour many idiotic travelers here.

Yes, BUT read her words:
She says "She hopes, " "there will be", "usually Travel more" , "she believes".. She never makes a claim. A BIG nothing

Not many but if you are retired and not worried about covid, the quarantine would be no big deal. For me the virus and the summer heat are plenty reason to stay away.

Actually flying is pretty safe in an airplane. The air gets changed every 2 to 3 minutes, which is more than any other enclosed building. As far as the protocols on ground, yes they are joke.
