New York:  As soon as she spots her son Liam at New York's JFK airport, Alison Henry runs towards him and gives him a long hug, tears welling up in her eyes.

"I just can't believe it, two and half years!" she says after stepping off a British Airways flight from London, as the United States reopened to vaccinated visitors Monday.

"It's just so emotional, overwhelming," Henry, 63, tells AFP.

She and 31-year-old Liam have spoken every week since the US drastically limited travel from several countries, including the UK, at the start of the pandemic in March 2020.
