Air Canada announced that it will entirely suspend scheduled transborder flights after April 26th. This move comes following the extension of the travel restrictions between Canada and the United States. The two countries agreed to introduce border measures to help tackle the coronavirus pandemic.
“Since March 16, Air Canada has reduced its schedule by more than 90 percent as a result of COVID-19,” Air Canada said within its press release.
“Following the initial announcement of U.S.-Canada travel restrictions on March 21, Air Canada maintained limited service to 11 U.S. destinations from its three Canadian hubs, primarily to facilitate the repatriation of Canadians,”
