The Cuban Airports and Aeronautical Services Company (ECASA) has shared information related to American Airlines and its flights from Cuba.
This has been the message they have published on their Telegram channel:
“Are you flying to the United States on American Airlines? The US Center for Disease Control requires all passengers to complete a certification or Affidavit.”
In this way, they warn that it is necessary to fill out an online form prior to the flight to avoid “queues at the airport”.
Specifically, American Airlines reports on its website that:
“The US government requires all passengers flying to the US (ages 2 and up) to complete the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) certification form. its acronym in English) to confirm that they meet the entry requirements. If you are not a US citizen, you must also have proof of C0VID-19 vaccination to fly, unless you qualify for an exception.”
What should Cubans who fly to the United States do?
You can fill out the form by visiting the page: https://www.aa.com/attestation/?from=qr_code
The page asks you to enter your data to begin. Next, you will need to complete a certification form for each passenger.
The initial data that they ask for are: name and surnames and flight locator.
Then you must press “continue” to start with the form.
“And what do they give you for confirmation? A QR code or an email?”, they asked ECASA.
From this company they responded that “in the system your reservation would already be reflected as if you completed the form. Similarly, if you travel on American Airlines and have the app verifly You can fill in the data that way without having to enter the website”.
They also indicated that “for more information you should contact the airline directly.”
ECASA has suggested to travelers that when they have all the health documents to travel to the United States, they can fill out this form.
for now, American Airlines maintains the following frequencies during the month of January to the José Martí International Airport in Havana: 1 daily flight (from 1 to 3) from Miami and 4 daily flights (from 4) from Miami.
Recently, Cuban Directory echoed a Univisión report where they reported that this company also limited its luggage to Cuba to two suitcases, leaving “a lot of discontent in the Cuban population residing in Miami.”
