VSbulletin COVID-19 Ongoing Travel Disruption - 24 Sep
It remains a dynamic time for international travel and we’re continually reviewing our flying schedules in response to the ongoing impact of Covid-19 and any restrictions in the destinations we fly to. We hope to be back to a full flying programme as soon as we can.
We’re excited to confirm that President Biden’s administration has announced that the United States will reopen its borders for fully vaccinated international visitors from November 2021. This means that from early November (date to be confirmed) if you’re fully vaccinated with a vaccine recognised by the United States, you’ll be able to enter the US as a visitor, be it for a holiday, business or reuniting with loved ones. Further information can be found here
Because of ongoing travel restrictions and Red list designations, we are making further adjustments to our Havana, Trinidad & Tobago and Cape Town schedules, resulting in cancellations. We’re sorry for the inconvenience caused to our customers and look forward to returning to these destinations as soon as possible. The Red list should focus purely on Variants of Concern, in order to protect public health, therefore it’s imperative to rapidly and continuously remove countries that don’t pose a threat, in order to open travel back up to countries like South Africa.
We’ve taken the difficult decision to delay the start of our Manchester-Montego Bay services until mid-December, with travel to Jamaica restricted for holidaymakers due to current FCDO advice currently advising against non-essential travel. Following the confirmed opening of US borders for fully vaccinated international visitors from early November, we’ve also adjusted some of our US schedules.
As a result of the fast-moving travel environment, we continue to make schedule changes which will affect our Flying Programme for the coming weeks.

seems a bit harsh? No idea if that is a typo or not?
If so that's just wiped out 2 more of my trips for this year
