02/02/2021: Update on CDC mask requirements for EMBARK Cardholders and Part 135 travel

02/02/2021
Mask requirements for EMBARK Cardholders

EMBARK Cardholders,

Effective today, all EMBARK customers must adhere to a new order issued by the Center for Disease Control. Per this order, all passengers must wear masks covering their nose and mouth while at the FBO and throughout the duration of their travel on board the aircraft.

Please note the following:

  • A properly worn mask must completely cover the nose and mouth of the wearer. The mask should be secured to the head, including with ties or ear loops. The mask should fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face. Face shields are not permitted for use in place of masks. CDC guidance for attributes of acceptable masks can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/masks/mask-travel-guidance.html.
  • Even if you have been vaccinated or recently tested negative for COVID-19, you will still be mandated to wear a mask both at the FBO and during travel.
  • The requirements to wear a mask shall not apply to the following circumstances:
    • While eating, drinking or taking medication, for brief periods
    • While communicating with a person who is hearing impaired when the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication
    • If, on an aircraft, wearing of oxygen masks is needed because of loss of cabin pressure or other event affecting aircraft ventilation
    • If unconscious (for reasons other than sleeping), incapacitated, unable to be awakened, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance
  • The following categories of passengers are exempt from this order:
    • A child under the age of two years
    • A person with a disability who cannot wear a mask, or cannot safely wear a mask, because of the disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (42 U.S.C. 12101 et seq.)
Mask requirements for Part 135 travel

Managed Aircraft Customers,

Effective February 2nd, all passengers on Part 135 flights must adhere to a new order issued by the Center for Disease Control. As we know some of you do take Part 135 flights occasionally, we wanted to make sure you are aware of this mandate. Please note those flying Part 91 or Part 91K are exempt from this order.

All Part 135 passengers must adhere to the following:

  • Wear masks covering their nose and mouth while at the FBO and throughout the duration of their travel on board your aircraft.
  • A properly worn mask must completely cover the nose and mouth of the wearer. The mask should be secured to the head, including with ties or ear loops. The mask should fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face. Face shields are not permitted for use in place of masks. CDC guidance for attributes of acceptable masks can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/masks/mask-travel-guidance.html.
  • Even if you have been vaccinated or recently tested negative for COVID-19, you will still be mandated to wear a mask both at the FBO and during travel.
  • The requirements to wear a mask shall not apply to the following circumstances:
    • While eating, drinking or taking medication, for brief periods
    • While communicating with a person who is hearing impaired when the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication
    • If, on an aircraft, wearing of oxygen masks is needed because of loss of cabin pressure or other event affecting aircraft ventilation
    • If unconscious (for reasons other than sleeping), incapacitated, unable to be awakened, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance
  • The following categories of passengers are exempt from this order:
    • A child under the age of two years

01/26/2021: Update on new entry requirements when returning to the U.S. from international destinations

Beginning on January 26th and until further notice, the Center for Disease Control will now require all international travelers to provide a negative COVID-19 test before re-entering the United States. Rest assured, we are here to help you through this process. Following is what you need to know:

  • All passengers (ages 2 or older) traveling from a foreign country (not including U.S. Territories) to the United States (including U.S. Territories) must take a COVID-19 test at least 3 days prior to departure.
  • If a passenger had COVID-19 within the previous 90 days and recovered, then that passenger may board with a letter from a licensed health provider stating that the passenger is cleared for travel. They do not need to take another COVID-19 test.
  • At this time, even if you have already been vaccinated, you will still need to be tested.
  • Results of the test must be provided in paper or electronic format to a member of your flight crew prior to boarding your flight back to the U.S.
  • When booking a future international trip, our Owner Services team will provide you with a Disclosure and Attestation form that you will need to complete prior to re-entering the U.S., as well as the location of a Qualified COVID-19 testing facility at your travel destination.

Prior to your trip, our Owner Services team will update you with more specific information, as we anticipate there may be ongoing changes to this process.
