Florida’s Travel Restrictions for Thursday will go into effect, but there’s a catch
WASHINGTON — Florida’s travel restrictions for Thursday include a new rule that will impose restrictions on how many flights a person can book on one-way tickets.
The travel restriction will apply to flights on the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the U,S.
possessions and Guam.
That means that travelers on those islands and U.A.E. mainland travel will not be allowed to book a one-seat trip for more than two people, the Federal Aviation Administration said Thursday.
If you have two or more people, you can book two one- or two-way trips.
It’s the latest in a series of rules that have been put in place in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Travelers are also now prohibited from bringing their own bags into some airports, including those at JFK and Newark Liberty International.
Passengers who bring back personal items will also be subject to TSA inspections.
“The most important thing to remember is to stay out of the air,” TSA spokesman David Alpert said.
“You can be checked and inspected on the plane.”
The rule will go in effect on Thursday.
