Slowly but surely, more international destinations are becoming available for vaccinated Americans to visit. Effective June 9th, France will welcome U.S. citizens who have received Astra Zeneca, Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

Starting July 7th, non-stop service to Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle Airport (CDG) from Delta’s hub at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport will return to the schedule, with three times weekly flights via Airbus A330 aircraft. For travelers looking to get away to Paris even sooner, Delta offers daily Airbus A350 and A330 non-stops from Atlanta’s Hartfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL), as well as one daily non-stop A330 flight from JFK International Airport (JFK) in New York.

Effective August 5th, daily A330 service will launch from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to Paris. Delta has also announced its return to the south of France, with three times weekly Boeing 767 flights from JFK to Nice Cote d’Azur Airport (NCE).

To ensure a smooth travel experience be aware that in addition to proof of being vaccinated that is acceptable to the European Medicines Agency, all arriving passengers must present proof of a negative COVID-19 test (less than 72 hours for a PCR test or less than 48 hours for an antigen test).

Bon voyage!

After a 35-year travel industry career, the time has come to kick back and relax. Well, not exactly, but it is time to travel without a business schedule dictating where and when. Over the years I've traveled extensively by air for work, both domestically and internationally. I've been to some incredibly exciting and beautiful destinations, and some others, not so much. So now it's my turn (and hopefully yours), to explore the world at a more leisurely pace. Whether you want to discover the U.S. or another continent, the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport is a great starting point. And that's what this blog is all about. I'm not here to assist the rich and famous in figuring out how to best earn and utilize their millions of airline miles and hotel points. Instead, my focus will be on the average Joe and Josephine. Hard-working people (like you!) who have saved up over time for their once or twice a year escape from reality. So if you're contemplating a getaway from MSP or the Upper Midwest via the Twin Cities, you've come to the right place. Happy trails!
