China Bans Air Canada Flights from YVR Due to Growing Omicron Cases

China has banned more Air Canada flights from YVR due to a growing number of incoming travellers with COVID-19, according to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). Back on 25DEC 2021, at least 17 air travellers tested positive for COVID-19 on Air Canada flight AC025 from YVR to Shanghai. “Starting [17JAN], four more flights operated by Air Canada AC025 will be cancelled,” reports Richmond News. Travel agents from Richmond, B.C., said the airline’s temporary suspension is related to CAAC’s “circuit breaker” policy, which suspends carriers if they bring in too many COVID-19 infected travellers.
