It’s Back to Business!
The Roatan airport opens to international travel August 17th!
Happy Friday! We have some good news to share today. Our airport is reopening to international flights and Government services have resumed – which means we can get back to business closing real estate deals! While there are still several key details to clarify, the Governer of Roatan, Dino Silvestri, announced this morning that the first international flight to the island will resume with American Airlines on Saturday, August 22nd. Our airport has implemented and tested biosecurity measures and will resume domestic flights on August 10th and open to International flights beginning August 17th. Currently, there are discussions with the Central Government to finalize the requirements and protocols for travelers to Roatan as well as what the local curfew and circulation guidelines will be for residents.An official release from the Central Government is expected over the next several days to communicate requirements to travelers visiting the island. It is believed that international passengers will need to take a Rapid Test before travel and upload the results to a virtual platform prior to departing, plus bring the physical paperwork to present to immigration officials upon arrival. The Galaxy Wave ferry operating between Roatan and La Ceiba hasn’t announced their date to resume operations, but are working on implementing biosecurity measures and should restart service soon.
Business as ‘almost’ usual
This week we had an offer accepted for our client on a condo at Infinity Bay and it has been officially placed under contract. We are working hard to finalize closings on deals that have been pending during the lockdown and closures. If you have been anxiously waiting to return or visit Roatan, we look forward to welcoming you soon! We are thrilled that Roatan real estate is moving again!
