Air Canada plans to restore some service to Jamaica, Mexico and Barbados beginning in early May.
The airline suspended all flights to sun destinations in January at the request of the federal government in a program that runs through April 30th.
Air Canada will operate three flights per week from Toronto to Mexico City starting May 3rd, and one flight per week from Toronto to Kingston, Jamaica and Bridgetown, Barbados beginning May 5th and May 9th respectively.
A statement from the airline also details plans to restore some routes including flights to Tokyo and Hong Kong in May.
In its most recent earnings call in February, Air Canada revealed that it expected the federal government to replace some quarantine measures for international travellers with a testing program at airports by the time the suspensions were scheduled to lift.
