Event: As of April 1, AeroMexico will be the only international carrier that has not suspended service from Nicaragua. AeroMexico does not have direct flights from Managua to the United States but does fly five times per week from Managua to Mexico City. From Mexico City, U.S.-based airlines connect to many U.S. cities, including Atlanta, Denver, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, and others. There is currently availability on AeroMexico flights after March 29, 2020.

U.S. citizens planning to leave Nicaragua should contact the airlines operating out of Nicaragua directly for updates on flight cancellations and suspension of services. Airline contact information is available on the Managua airport website.

The Embassy is working with airlines to gauge demand for additional commercial flights. In addition, the Embassy is coordinating a potential flight for U.S. citizens to the United States on Wednesday, April 1, which would land at Alexandria International Airport (AEX) in Alexandria, LA. U.S. citizens wishing to be included on a list of passengers for this potential flight must fill out this form.

You should fill out one form per passenger. If you have already filled out the form registering your interest, you do not need to do so again. If you are unable to fill out the form, please email ACSManagua@state.gov.
