Air Canada To Temporarily Suspend Transborder U.S. Flights Until Mid-May
Anna Kroupina, Open Jaw
Air Canada says it will suspend scheduled service to the U.S. after April 26 as a result of the agreement between the governments of Canada and the United States to extend border restrictions by an additional 30 days, effective today.
Air Canada plans to resume service to the U.S. May 22, subject to any further government restrictions beyond that date.
The airline is waiving change fees for affected customers with bookings during this period to enable them to reschedule their travel with no additional fee.
Since March 16, Air Canada has reduced its schedule by more than 90% as a result of COVID-19. 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. These flights will now be temporarily discontinued.
