Effective March 18th, The Government of Canada has imposed travel restrictions for all flights entering Canada to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Any foreign individual, who has been present outside of Canada or the United States in the last 14 days will be prohibited entry and will be denied boarding. This does not apply to Canadian Citizens, Canadian Permanent Residents, Immediate Family Members and certain exempt persons, so long as no person is exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms.
Beginning on Sunday, March 22, 2020, at 11:59 p.m., we will suspend all our international and transborder flights. This suspension follows Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s announcement imposing travel restrictions for all flights entering Canada to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The suspension will be in place until May 31, 2020.
On Monday, March 23, 2020, we will start repatriation flights for all our Swoop travellers. Currently, we have arranged 15 flights over 3 days to bring the more than 2,300 travellers home.
We will be providing regular updates on all our channels and are reaching out directly to these impacted travellers via email with more specific information.
As travel has not been restricted within Canada, domestic travel is continuing to operate as usual.
