KLM Steps Up Service to Canada as Travel Restrictions Ease
KLM has announced it will increase its services to Canada after the country opened up to vaccinated travelers. The airline will offer daily flights to Toronto and Calgary, flights to Vancouver and Montreal four times a week, and a twice-weekly service to Edmonton via Calgary.
Canada has finally opened up to international travelers after shutting down non-essential travel since the beginning of the pandemic. After opening up to fully vaccinated US citizens in August, the country has now eased restrictions on vaccinated travelers from around the globe.
In response, KLM will increase its services to Canada starting today, together with its Canadian partner WestJet.
As per today’s change in travel restrictions, passengers heading to Canada will need to be double-vaccinated and hold a negative PCR test taken up to 72 hours before departure. All double-vaccinated travelers must have received their second jab at least 14 days prior to flying.
Currently accepted vaccines in Canada are Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Astra Zeneca/CovidShield, and Janssen (Johnson and Johnson). Additionally, all travelers will need to download Canada’s ArriveCAN app and upload their vaccination and test information and also complete a passenger locator form.
