Message for U.S. Citizens: Update: Suspension of All Commercial Airline Services (April 06, 2020)

Location: Nicaragua

Event: Aeromexico will suspend service to Managua starting April 9, 2020.  After the final April 9 Aeromexico flight, there will be no commercial flights between Nicaragua and the United States until at least early May.  U.S. citizens in Nicaragua who wish to return to the United States should take advantage of this final opportunity or be prepared to stay in Nicaragua indefinitely.

Aeromexico does not have direct flights from Managua to the United States but does fly 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.  Airline contact information is available on the Managua airport website: https://www.eaai.com.ni/en/aerolines-internationals

The U.S. government does not anticipate arranging repatriation flights from Nicaragua at this time.
