Majority of Domestic Flights in Canada Are Getting Cancelled or Delayed

More than half of all domestic flights from Canada’s major airports are being cancelled or delayed, reports CTV News. That’s despite the vaccine mandate for airline staff being lifted 22JUN, which was a measure that was supposed to reduce delays and cancellations by Canada’s airlines.

Fredericton, N.B.-based data strategy agency DataWazo tracked domestic flight statuses from YUL, YYZ, YTZ, YHZ, YOW, and YYC since 22JUN. The data company says there was not much difference in the data before and after the rules changed. Of the 257 domestic flights tracked by DataWazo since that date, 54 per cent of them were cancelled or delayed (16 per cent and 38 per cent, respectively).

Out of 80 domestic flights from YUL, 25 per cent were cancelled and 43 per cent were delayed (totalling 68 per cent). Out of 72 flights at YYZ, 22 per cent were cancelled and 54 per cent were delayed (totalling 76 per cent).
