Canada’s largest airline says it won’t be operating flights to the United States for the majority of next month.
Air Canada announced Tuesday that it will be suspending all of its flights to the United States beginning April 26. The airline says it will resume flights to the U.S. on May 22.
The move is in response to the recent decision by the Canadian and U.S. governments to extend existing border restrictions between the two countries to May 21, according to Air Canada.
Travel restrictions between Canada and the United States were introduced on March 21 and since then the airline has operated a limited number of flights to 11 U.S. cities.
Air Canada says the flights are “primarily to facilitate the repatriation of Canadians” and that the last scheduled commercial flight from the U.S. to Canada will be on April 26.
The airline says it waiving change fees for affected customers with bookings during this period to enable them to reschedule their travel with no additional fee.
