For more than a year, Canada was subject to extensive entry restrictions. Now the country wants to gradually open its borders to vaccinated people.
The Canadian health authority said that starting August 9, US citizens and people living in the United States will be allowed to enter, provided they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at least two weeks prior.
From 7 September, citizens of other countries should also be allowed to enter, provided they are protected from disease by vaccines. Visitors would then have to enter travel data already on an Internet portal – however, a quarantine should not be necessary.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the opening of the border last week, noting the progress made.
Air Canada is also in the beginning
In response to the opening of the border, Air Canada announced its current summer cross-border flight schedule. It covers 55 routes and 34 destinations in the US, with 220 daily flights between the US and Canada. “We plan to resume flights to all 57 US destinations that were previously served as soon as conditions allow,” said Mark Gallardo, Air Canada’s senior vice president, network planning and revenue management.
