Travel Advisory: Fly fuss-free with these tips from GMT

UNITED SAYS OH-LA-LA!

If you’re headed to the South of France from the U.S., you now have another option: United Airlines has inaugurated daily nonstop Newark-to-Nice flights, effective May 1. Delta’s New York JFK-to-Nice route continues to be a popular option, but competition can only be good for the business traveler, and it’s encouraging to see another player throw their hat into the ring. A third carrier on the route, La Compagnie, operates business- class-only flights from Newark to Nice three times weekly on new A321NEO aircraft.

Note: If you plan on attending the Monaco Yacht Show, grab your marine fare tickets now, before flights fill up and the prices increase. You’ ll thank us later!

MASKS ARE GONE, BUT…

Within the U.S, airlines have recently eliminated in-flight mask requirements, although most airports still require them to be worn while in terminals, concessionaires, baggage claim areas, etc. So before you head out the door, make sure you have a few masks on hand — and as always, be ready for anything!

SUMMER SALES?

If you’re thinking it’s time to take a proper vacation, don’t wait for a summer sale to purchase airline tickets; that ship has sailed!

Jet fuel cost, as with regular gas, has soared in the wake

of supply uncertainties related to the Ukraine invasion. Check with GMT for the latest prices and availability.

COVID FOR THE EU:

Be aware that to enter the EU from outside the Schengen Area, you must show proof of vaccination and/or booster dated at least 14 days prior to travel and within 270 days. A COVID Recovery certificate is also acceptable if issued within the prior 180 days.
