Air Canada is to halt flights to the island next month because of the latest surge in Covid-19 cases.

An Air Canada spokesman said the airline would suspend services between Toronto and Bermuda from January 9.

The spokesman said: “Air Canada continues to evaluate and adjust its route network as required in response to the trajectory of the pandemic, government-imposed travel restrictions and quarantines, and regulatory requirements.

“Affected customers will be contacted by Air Canada and offered options, including refunds for eligible customers and alternative routings where available.”

The news came after the January flight schedule revealed that WestJet is to reduce its service between Bermuda and Toronto from two flights a week to one.

Delta Air Lines is also not expected to resume service between Bermuda and Boston in the near future.

The service ran daily until March 2020, but the route was one of several removed from the airline’s schedule for the 2021-22 year, media reports said.
