Airports Reopening in Canada to International Flights and Travel Requirements

  • by

Canada is allowing international flights at a limited number of airports at this time. This is due to the pandemic. At the end of November, 2021, Canada will open more airports to international flights.

Staff and passengers departing from a Canadian airport at the end of November will also have to be fully vaccinated. This will apply to airlines, trains, and cruise ships.

Increased vaccinations have allowed more airports to reopen. This is part of Canada’s reopening of its border.

The airports that will be reopening are:

  • St. John’s International
  • John C. Munro Hamilton International
  • Region of Waterloo International
  • Regina International
  • Saskatoon John G. Diefenbaker International
  • Kelowna International
  • Abbotsford International
  • Victoria International

At one point in the pandemic, there were only four airports in Canada accepting international flights. The additional airports reopening join the following airports which are already open for international flights:

  • Halifax Stanfield International
  • Québec City Jean Lesage International
  • Montréal-Trudeau International
  • Ottawa/Macdonald–Cartier International
  • Toronto Pearson International
  • Billy Bishop Toronto City Centre
  • Winnipeg James/Armstrong Richardson International
  • Edmonton International
  • Calgary International
  • Vancouver International

The ongoing pandemic will continue to have an influence on international travellers and flights to Canada.
