Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on January 29, 2021, Air Canada, WestJet, Sunwing, and Air Transat have agreed to suspend service to certain destinations, such as the Caribbean and Mexico, starting the 29th, until April 30, 2021, and will be making arrangements with their customers who are in these regions now to organize flights home.

"With the challenges we currently face with the COVID-19 pandemic, both here at home and abroad, we all agree that now is just not the time to be flying," said Trudeau outside his home at Rideau Cottage.

Starting next week, all international passenger flights, including from the USA, will land at the Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, and Montreal airports, said Trudeau.
