UNITED Airlines has informed the Commonwealth Ports Authority that it will resume its CNMI-Guam flight service beginning May 2.

To address the CNMI’s concerns regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, United Airlines on March 30 suspended flights scheduled for Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

On April 6, United Airlines suspended its CNMI flight service as requested by Gov. Ralph DLG Torres.

CPA Chairwoman Kimberlyn King-Hinds told Variety on Wednesday that United Airlines has informed CPA that it will resume its CNMI flights to and from Guam beginning May 2, three times a week — Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

But she said the standing directive from the CNMI government “has not changed with regard to discouraging travel in and out and between the islands of the CNMI as a health precaution in light of the pandemic.”

Asked for comment, Press Secretary Kevin Bautista said:

"All passengers travelling from outside of the Commonwealth will continue to be subject to mandatory quarantine for 14 days at PIC, the Covid-19 Task Force's designated quarantine facility. Under Governor Torres, the CNMI was the first jurisdiction in the Pacific to implement a mandatory 14-day quarantine of all inbound passengers. It is one of the reasons why we have been able to keep our curve flat, while continuing to be proactive in maintaining active surveillance, developing our local healthcare capacity, ramping up community-based testing, and pushing a strong public information campaign to protect the people of the Marianas."
