“The Government of Canada has announced the removal of all Covid-19 entry restrictions, as well as testing, quarantine and isolation requirements for anyone entering Canada, effective October 1, 2022,” the Canadian government announced on its official website.

The executive invokes the improvement in the epidemiological situation and the high vaccination rate in the country for the total lifting of restrictions, although they continue to “strongly” recommend the use of a face mask when travelling.

“We believe this decision will greatly facilitate travel, help stabilise the country's air transport industry and support Canada's economy,” said Craig Landry, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Air Canada.
