The BC Centre for Disease Control has flagged three more flights through Vancouver International Airport because passengers with coronavirus were on board.

They identified one international flight from New Delhi that landed at YVR on August 28 as a risk for potential exposure. Passengers on Air India’s flight 1143 should monitor for symptoms for at least 14 days after exposure.

The BC CDC also flagged two flights that departed Vancouver for Toronto.

The most recent flight was Air Transat’s flight 931 on August 29.

The second Toronto-bound flight was Air Transat’s 932 flight on August 23.

Airlines do not contact customers who may have been exposed to coronavirus directly. Instead, people who flew recently should check the BC CDC’s site and the federal government’s list of potential coronavirus exposure to see if their flight has an infected person on board.
