Looking to get away from home and relax on some sandy beaches?

You may no longer need to be stuck inside as states are running through plans and guidelines to reopen. Southwest and American Airlines intend to resume international flights as of next month, so if you had a vacation that was previously postponed or canceled, this may be your opportunity.

Southwest announced that its international flights to Los Cabos and Cancun, Mexico, Havana, Cuba, Montego Bay, Jamaica and Nassau, Bahamas will resume on June 7. Service will resume from Phoenix International to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on October 8. All other international destinations will remain suspended through the end of October.

There still remains some uncertainly around “the return of international demand in the fall,” thus the timeline for other international operations remain to be determined, according to a Southwest blog post published this week.

American Airlines already resumed service from Dallas Fort Worth to Madrid aboard a Boeing 787 on Thursday. This is the airline’s first flight to continental Europe since the announcement of reduced schedules. Through Madrid, passengers can connect to other European destinations. Other international flights will return slowly over the next few months.

Flights to Amsterdam and Frankfurt from Dallas are scheduled to return on June 4 while in July, flights to Frankfurt, Dublin, Seoul, Lima and Sao Paulo are expected to come back.
