A good news comes to us directly from Paraguay: the International Airport Silvio Pettirossi, located in Luque, near the capital Asunción, is ready to reopen with its flights from and to Paraguay.
As a matter of fact, the Minister Federico Gonzalez participated in the Paraguayan National Defence Council and announced to the local people and to the many foreign people who were waiting for this news that the Paraguayan Airport is operating since Wednesday 21 October 2020.
All national and international flights will be restored, provided that all the security measures, already approved by the Council of Ministers, are respected.
This protocol was prepared by the Ministry of Public Health and Social Welfare, that recommended to respect it scrupulously, in order not to incur in another closing.
A very important news is that all passengers who fly to Paraguay for a stay of less than 7 days do not have to be quarantine, but it is enough that they show document demonstrating they did a Covid swab test in the previous 72 hours, obviously with a negative result.
In addition, the computer systems of the Immigration Department work at full speed in order to track all those who entered and moved within the country and to be able to trace quickly positive Covid cases, if occurred after their entry into Paraguay.
Of course, for all those who intend to stay in the country for more than 7 days, a quarantine of 14 days to spend in apartment or Hotel continues to be mandatory.
Those wishing to shorten quarantine to only 7 days, can do it, provided that they do a Covid swab test (which must of course be negative) in the previous 72 hours before their departure from their country.
We must also remember that International Health Insurance is still in force, and it is stipulated precisely for Covid cases.
Paraguayan Airlines are willing to work closely with Governement to enforce scrupulously all the listed measures (face mask, social distance, independent entry and exit), but they try to mediate a little bit to see if it is possible, respecting health and safety of all passengers, make them a little more “elastic”.
Talks between parties have begun and any news will be promptly disclosed to passengers and to Paraguayan population.
Trade Unions are also at the forefront to protect health and safety of all those who work every day on national and international flights, in close contact with passengers from all around the world.
International flights keep the observance of standard measures in force all over the world, while for regional flights within the country is probably scheduled a greater flexibility.
We are sure that the preventive measures, scrupulously taken by all Paraguayan airlines, contribute decisively to a decrease in infection and that flights from and to Paraguay are safe and reliable to allow to more and more people to visit and to live in this beautiful country, taking all the opportunities it can offer to a stranger and his/her family.
