Alert: Cancelled: March 30 Evacuation Flight to Atlanta, GA
March 30, 2020

Location: Colombia

Event: Cancellation of March 30 Evacuation Flight

It is with profound regret that we inform you the March 30 evacuation flight for U.S. citizens NO LONGER HAS SEAT AVAILABILITY due to a complication with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  We know that this last minute cancellation creates exceptional hardship for U.S. citizens and their families planning to take this flight, particularly those who had traveled to Bogota.  The loss of seating was a surprise to the U.S. Embassy, and we are working to find alternatives.  Please monitor your email, the U.S. Embassy website, and social media for further updates.  As of this message, we do not know if any seats will be available to evacuate U.S. citizens.  All previously confirmed seats for this flight are cancelled.  Should the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency make a few seats available, they will be allocated to U.S. citizens who are particularly vulnerable during this health emergency.

We will not have any new information until morning.

The Department of State has issued a Global Level 4 Health Advisory for COVID-19
