On 24 April 2020, the U.S. Embassy in Lima issued an alert regarding repatriation flights, which reads in part as follows:
“In addition to the fully-booked Eastern Airlines April 29 flight, Eastern Airlines has obtained permission from the Peruvian government to offer a second emergency repatriation flight from Lima to Miami on Wednesday, May 6. The flight is open to U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents. Purchase tickets online at https://goeasternair.com, by calling +1 (855) 216-7601, or WhatsApp +52-1-800-953-1800.
“Private tour operator Solange Reps notified the U.S. Embassy that its charter flight from Lima to Miami scheduled for Thursday, April 30, is already fully booked. This is not a U.S. Embassy flight. Solange Reps is planning additional flights. We will continue to send regular updates and share pertinent new information about additional flights as it becomes available.”
