Air Canada temporarily suspends US transborder flights

Apr 21 2020, 9:58 am

Air Canada is suspending scheduled transborder service to the United States after April 26 due to an agreement reached between the Canadian and US governments to extend border restrictions for an additional 30 days.

Service is anticipated to resume as of May 22, so long as there are no further governmental restrictions implemented beyond that date.

The airline is also waiving change fees for customers with bookings affected during this time, giving them the opportunity to reschedule their trips without incurring any additional fees.

“Since March 16, Air Canada has reduced its schedule by more than 90 per cent as a result of COVID-19,” an official press release explains.

“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. The last scheduled commercial flight from the U.S. to Canada will be on April 26.”
