talks are happening now between the government and the airports and airlines to make sure they can be ready for when those travel rules begin to relax.
“In the coming days, we’re going to be announcing details about the phasing of reopening or adjusting travel measures,” Alghabra told journalists.
“We’ve been in contact with airports, with airline companies and other companies who support the aviation sector about our plan. Certainly, we need to give them time to prepare for reopening, and we feel confident that our partnership with them and their dedicated and committed workers and teams will be ready to work with us on the phasing of reopening travel.”
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said any easing of the rules will focus on “fully vaccinated” Canadians.
His comments also came amid continued questions over whether quarantine hotels for incoming travellers are working as intended and at what point the growing number of partially and fully vaccinated Canadians might be able to begin travelling and living more normally.
