The border between Canada and the USA may be closed, but some international flights are still landing at YYC.

According to the Government of Canada, there was an international flight to Calgary this month with a confirmed coronavirus case.

Delta flight DL7203 from Atlanta, Georgia, to Calgary on August 4, had a person with coronavirus on the plane. Rows 10 to 16 are considered at a high risk of exposure.

This flight was one of many landing in Canada with confirmed coronavirus cases reported over the past week.

Anyone returning to Canada from a different country faces a mandatory quarantine for 14 days following their arrival, the government website states.

August 2 saw a domestic flight from Calgary to Toronto, WestJet’s WS676, affect an unknown number of rows due to a confirmed case.

There were also a number of flights with coronavirus cases either land or take off from YYC by the end of July.

Air Canada flight AC395 from Calgary to Ottawa on July 27 saw rows 19 to 25 impacted, while that same day, Air Canada flight AC204 from Vancouver to Calgary also carried a confirmed case, with a high risk to rows 18 through 24.

The following day saw a case on Air Canada flight AC155 from Toronto to Calgary for rows 23 to 29.

And finally, a flight from Victoria to Calgary on July 29, WestJet’s WS538, affected rows 5 to 11.
