Covid-19 Travel Resources

The following information is intended to help Silver passengers as they prepare to travel.
Silver makes an effort to update the resources as often as possible, but this information is supplemental to the requirements put out by each destination's authorized government health officials. 

U.S. Entry Requirements

CDC requires all travelers arriving from international destinations to show proof of a negative Covid test or documentation from a medical professional stating recovery from a positive case.
Effective December 6, 2021 at 12:01am EST (5:01am GMT)
The CDC order, found here, states.

"All air passengers 2 years or older with a flight departing to the US from a foreign country are required show a negative COVID-19 viral test result taken no more than 1 day before travel, or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days, before they board their flight."

You must be tested with a viral test that could be either an antigen test or a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT). The test used must be authorized for use by the relevant national authority for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 in the country where the test is administered. More information on acceptable tests can be found here

Are you a Non-U.S Citizen, Non-U.S. Immigrant?

If you are a non-U.S. citizen non-U.S. immigrant and not fully vaccinated, you will not be allowed to enter the United States. Only limited exceptions apply to the requirement to show proof of vaccination. Please refer to the CDC for more information. 

Domestic Travel

There are currently no travel restrictions when traveling domestic with Silver, but CDC recommends the following, "Delay travel until you are fully vaccinated. If you are not fully vaccinated and must travel, follow CDC’s recommendations for unvaccinated people."
The most up to date CDC recommendations for domestic travel can be found here.

Effective April 18, 2022:

Masks are no longer required on Silver Airways on domestic flights, select international flights (dependent upon the arrival country’s mask requirements) or at U.S. airports.

While this means that our employees are no longer required to wear a mask – and no longer have to enforce a mask requirement for most of the flying public – they will be able to wear masks if they choose to do so, as the CDC continues to strongly recommend wearing a mask on public transit.
