Flights between Bermuda and Canada will be grounded until at least the end of April, it was announced yesterday.

Air Canada and WestJet decided to halt flights to Mexico and the Caribbean region until April 30 in an effort to prevent the spread of more contagious strains of Covid 19.

Justin Trudeau, the Canadian Prime Minister, also announced stricter restrictions on visitors from other countries, including a mandatory hotel quarantine.

Air Canada suspended service to Bermuda on January 8.

Service was originally expected to restart on February 12, but the airline last week extended the suspension until at least April 12.
