Delta Air Lines will more than double its daily flights to Canada in September as the nation reopens to fully vaccinated U.S. travelers, the carrier announced.
The carrier in September plans to operate 19 flights between the United States and Canada, up from eight currently and an increase of 150 percent in terms of available seats, according to Delta. The growth will include restarted service to Winnipeg and increased service to Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal. Toronto will see the bulk of the increase, with 10 total daily flights, including new service of four daily flights from New York’s LaGuardia Airport starting Sept. 13.
Canada last week announced that it would begin allowing fully vaccinated U.S. citizens to visit without quarantine starting Aug. 9. Travelers will need to provide proof of vaccination and a negative test taken within 72 hours of departure to enter Canada as well as another negative test taken within 72 hours of departure when returning to the United States.
