Event: The Embassy in Bridgetown, Barbados is exploring the possibility of another flight with the commercial carrier – Seaborne Airlines/Silver Airways –from Barbados (BGI) to San Juan (SJU), Puerto Rico (U.S.A.) for the purpose of repatriating U.S. citizens.  U.S. citizens who are interested in this potential flight opportunity should contact the Embassy by emailing us at BridgetownACS@state.gov.  In the subject line of your email, please write “[Your Surname] – Repat Flight from Barbados to San Juan”.  Please include your name, contact number, and the number of people who would be flying with you in the body of the email.  Please respond no later than Sunday, May 10.

Please note the following:

·        The cost of this flight would be roughly $650 per passenger.
