Event: Seats available on humanitarian flight operated by French Embassy

The U.S. Embassy is aware of the availability of a humanitarian flight organized by the French Embassy from San Andres/Providencia to Bogotá on or about May 1. French officials have offered a very limited number of seats to U.S. citizens seeking to return to the mainland in order to catch future humanitarian flights, which must be booked separately.

Flight costs would be a minimum of approximately 1,300,000 COL pesos per passenger, if the plane flies at capacity. The fare will be higher if they do not fill all available seats. This flight includes a stop in Providencial.
