Between March 26th and March 28th, American Airlines will be operating some repatriation flights. These flights will leave Latin America en route to the airline’s largest hub at Dallas-Forth Worth in an effort to bring people back from those destinations.

Charters for the US State Department
Over the past week, American has also flown charters for the U.S. State Department from Guatemala City, Guatemala, and Lima, Peru, to get U.S. citizens home.
Today close to 300 more U.S. citizens departed Peru on two flights from Lima and Cusco. We have now repatriated close to 1,000 U.S. citizens. We know we are not finished and we will continue our efforts until we repatriate all U.S. citizens seeking to return home. pic.twitter.com/MRldlOHWUn
