Air France has taken note of the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS)’s announcement of new United States border restrictions as of 14 March 2020. Air France is working with its partners KLM, Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic on implementing a plan to continue service to the United States for its customers beyond 28 March 2020.
Due to the coronavirus and in order to safeguard the health of customers and employees, KLM will examine on a daily basis whether adjustments to the network are necessary and what operational measures need to be taken. As it now stands (12 March 2020), KLM will maintain the network to destinations in the US where passengers are screened, for the next two weeks as long as possible, also to give customers the opportunity to travel home. The current flight information can be found on KLM.com and in the KLM app. KLM will keep a close eye on all developments and is in direct contact with the health and aviation authorities.
