Air Canada has announced it is suspending service to the United States after the two countries extended their agreement to restrict travel across the border for another 30 days.
The last commercial flights from Canada to 11 destinations in the U.S. will be on Sunday, April 26.
The carrier said it will resume service on May 22 unless the border restrictions are renewed again. Non-essential travel between the United States and Canada was stopped on March 21 for 30 days and then renewed again for another 30 days on April 22.
Air Canada said it will waive change fees for any customer booked on a flight to the U.S.
According to the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., WestJet has also extended its suspension of all transborder and international flights. It stopped flying those routes on March 22 and extended the service suspension until June 4.
According to The Points Guy, excluding the days after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, the suspension of service is believed to be the first time that Air Canada has not flown to the U.S. since almost 80 years ago.
