The Alberta government has put in place additional screening measures for travellers arriving at Calgary and Edmonton's airports from abroad. These new checkpoints will be after Canada Customs and will include thermal screening of travellers and those travellers must provide a detailed isolation plan including location, how they plan on obtaining food and who will be providing support to them during the 14 day period.

Airline Schedule Updates
This will now be a standard feature for the foreseeable future in our daily update posts as we summarize Canadian operations based on data from RoutesOnline and other sources. Remember that many of these route plans are subject to change and right now they are changing frequently!

Even though the closure of the Canada-U.S. border has been extended to June 21 it does appear that Air Canada is going ahead with a few select flights between Canada and the U.S. as of tomorrow. Mind you they have not updated their schedule page since May 15 (prior to the news) but I checked today and these flights can be booked on Air Canada's website. Those flights are Vancouver to Los Angeles and San Francisco and Toronto to Washington Dulles as well. On Monday Toronto to Boston and Chicago look to start. The remainder of their planned schedule is set to launch on June 22 . (Source Air Canada)
