My friends were just contacted by Air Transat informing them that their November flight to the UK has been cancelled. Seems a bit far off to be cancelling??

They are adjusting their schedules with today’s realities. I’m pretty sure the cancelled flight was one that had been planned before the Covid crisis.

Was it a flight to YUL? I was told those flights have been cancelled and will have to connect through YYZ from LGW to YUL.

As long as the quarantine rules lift in Canada and those destinations we’ll pick up steam pretty quickly. If not, that schedule will get slashed.

That might delay some recalls unfortunately.

This is very bad news......

If each country does its own thing in its corner instead of using universal standards based on a common reference, its going to be chaos.
If they arrive from a foreign country other than the U.S.
The order covering the US is separate and for now ends July 21.....

At the same time, the EU is allowing Canadians in, but not US citizens. The EU also stated

https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/european- ... -1.5632422
The EU said China is "subject to confirmation of reciprocity," meaning it must lift all restrictions on European citizens entering China before Chinese citizens will be allowed back into the EU.
So reciprocity is a factor for the EU. They may not take kindly that they allow us in while we do not reciprocate......

There is a glimmer of hope .. seems like they extended the program as a stopgap measure until new criteria can be agreed on. I would hope, expect this to change in the coming days, weeks.

The EU putting Canada as a safe country for travel is a start. We just gotta get rid of the 14 day quarantine and then Transat should do alright. I know there is lots at play however this is a big part of it.

Looks to me that there’s 2 dates, first is entry to travellers who are not Canadian citizens, and the second is quarantine for anyone arriving into Canada.

Extended to July 31 - travel ban that bars entry to all travellers who are not Canadian citizens, permanent residents or people entering from the U.S. for "essential" reasons

Extended to Aug 31 - the federal government is also extending strict quarantine rules requiring travellers to isolate for 14 days upon their arrival in Canada

Also, a separate order prohibits non-essential travel between Canada and the U.S. and remains in effect until July 21

It is possible Trudeau would let a hundred airlines fail if it meant saving one life. We might question it but many of his base would agree so we should not be surprised if this is his policy. Women and urban male vote count just as much as your vote.
