Canada bans flights to the Caribbean and Mexico

Published on : Monday, February 1, 2021

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently announced a new agreement with airlines to suspend travel to the Caribbean and Mexico due to COVID-19. The country’s main airlines, including Air Canada and WestJet, will end service immediately and organise return travel for those currently abroad. The government will also mandate new testing and three-day quarantine periods upon arrival in Canada amid reports of many Canadians travelling internationally this winter.


Prime Minister Trudeau also announced that Air Canada, WestJet, Sunwing, and Air Transat have agreed to suspend all flights to “sun” destinations such as the Caribbean effective Sunday, January 31. The measures will be in place until April 30. Trudeau also commended the leadership of these airlines in working in concert with the federal government to enact this measure. He also made it clear that the new moves are intended to discourage all unnecessary and vacation travel, not just to Mexico and the Caribbean and shared that by putting in place the tough measures at present, people can look forward to a better time, when everyone can plan all the vacations.
