Air Canada just suspended all flights to the U.S. for almost a month
Air Canada just suspended all flights to the U.S. for almost a month, effective April 26.
The Canadian airline has been maintaining flights to 11 destinations in the United States from three Canadian hubs, primarily to "facilitate the repatriation of Canadians."
The decision comes as a result of the Canadian and U.S. governments' agreement to extend border restrictions by an additional 30 days, effective today.

Air Canada anticipates resuming its scheduled service to the U.S. on May 22, subject to any further government restrictions.
Customers booked on flights during the affected booking period can reschedule their travel at no additional fee. The airline is not offering full refunds for any flights affected by COVID-19 at this time.
Air Canada has already reduced its schedule by more than 90 per cent as a result of COVID-19, suspending over 150 domestic and international routes in March.
