Connecting flights to the United States from Amsterdam and London are currently operating, however they may involve layovers and/or additional connections in Europe or the U.S. to reach a preferred destination city in the U.S.  Read this information for U.S. Citizens Returning from Europe (scroll about halfway down the page) regarding where U.S. citizens are allowed to transit en route to the United States.

Transit passengers in Amsterdam will not be allowed to leave the terminal regardless of the wait time between flights.

Note that flights from Europe are only being permitted to fly into 13 specific airports in the United States, as detailed on the Department of Homeland Security’s website, so you will need to plan your travel route accordingly.

We understand how difficult the current situation is, especially for those of you who are separated from your loved ones, trying to decide whether to stay in Georgia or trying to get home to the United States. We continue to explore options to assist U.S. citizens in Georgia; please let us know what assistance you need!

And please encourage your fellow U.S. citizens in Georgia to enroll in our Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) so that everyone will receive our future emails and alerts.

Sincerely,
