Air Canada Latest Covid 19 Flight Refunds/Changes.

 

 

 

 

 

Air Canada announced that vouchers for cancelled travel will now be fully transferable and that the vouchers will no longer have a time limit.

 

In cases where Air Canada cancels flights due to COVID-19, customers with refundable tickets will continue to have the option of refunds. 

 

Both customers with refundable and non-refundable tickets will have two new options to choose from:

- An Air Canada Travel Voucher for the remaining value of their ticket that has no expiry date, is fully transferable and retains any residual value or;

- The ability to convert the remaining value of their ticket into Aeroplan Miles, with 65 per cent more value versus the normal rate for buying Miles.

For voluntary changes, customers with refundable tickets will continue to have the option of refunds or the above new options. For Air Canada customers with non-refundable tickets making voluntary changes on tickets issued up to June 30, 2020, with an original travel date between March 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021 inclusive, they have the option to choose from the two above new options of an Air Canada Travel Voucher or Aeroplan Miles.

The new goodwill policies and cancellation options are retroactive for customers with original travel between March 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. Customers whose flights have been cancelled due to the impacts of COVID-19 and who have already received travel credit valid for 24 months, will be able to select one of the applicable options depending on their fare at aircanada.com beginning June 15, 2020.

Pearson International Airport officials are limiting the number of people who will be allowed to enter the terminal starting next week.

According to a directive sent by the Greater Toronto Airport Authority, “meeters and greeters” will not be allowed to accompany passengers arriving and/or leaving in to the airport. An exception will be made for anyone who is travelling as an unaccompanied minor or assisting anyone with disabilities.

The restriction also applies to those individuals who work at Pearson.

“Airport workers who need to meet with family members or other acquaintances for any reason before, during or after their workday, must do so outside the terminal buildings,” reads the directive. “Family members or acquaintances are not permitted inside the terminals for any reason until further notice from the GTAA.”

All airport workers are asked to maintain a two metre distance between colleagues and passengers wherever possible in the terminal.

Also as of June 1, all passengers and airport workers will be required to wear a face covering at all times when in public areas of the airport including security screening, parking facilities, sidewalks and curbs outside the terminal and other outdoor public areas.

The directive says you may be asked to remove the face covering for identification purposes or if you are seated and physically distanced when eating or drinking.

Since April 20, people flying to or from Canadian airports have been required to wear face covering following a Transport Canada directive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No Cruises From Canadian Ports This Summer.

 

Canada has extended its ban on cruise ships carrying more than 100 until at least 31OCT, pushing off the possibility of a summer cruise ship season.

In March, the federal government announced it was temporarily banning all large cruise ships and ferries that carry more than 500 people, including crew, from docking in Canada until 01JUL in order to limit the spread of COVID-19. 

Now, Transport Minister Marc Garneau is extending that ban for four months.

He acknowledged that this decision will have a major impact on the Canadian tourism industry, but couldn’t say whether further financial assistance is on the horizon for the businesses and provinces that will be hardest hit by this move. 

In 2019, 140 cruise ships from more than 10 countries came ashore in Canada, and annually the industry brings at least two million travellers into the country, according to CTVNews.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sunwing Continues Domestic Service This Summer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seeing some of the great sights of Canada will be easy this summer, thanks to Sunwing’s domestic service.

For the 15th straight year, Sunwing has announced a return of their Canadian domestic program. Flights will start in late June and run each week until the first part of October.

Sunwing will be offering a range of convenient hotel, flight and car rental options for great destinations around the country.

One great option are flights from Toronto to Newfoundland, one of the truly spectacular provinces in Canada.

Sunwing will offer flights between Toronto Pearson to St. John’s from Monday to Friday from June 26 to Sept. 9. They also will have twice-weekly flights from Pearson to Gander International, made famous in the “Come From Away” play. Those flights will run from June 26 to Sept. 8.

In addition, there will be weekly flights from YYZ to Deer Lake, Newfoundland, operating every Wednesday from July 1 to Sept. 9.

Deer Lake is a short drive from wondrous Gros Morne National Park, home to magical, deep fjords and towering mountain cliffs. The town of Rocky Harbour also is a delight to explore.

Sunwing also will operate weekly flights between Vancouver and Toronto on Thursdays from July 2 to Oct. 8, and on Sundays from June 28 to Oct. 4.

With the Canadian dollar still low against the U.S. greenback and the Euro, and with COVID-19 concerns still lingering, Canada promises to be a super-hot market for travel this summer.
