Safe travels

Enhanced safety screening

For the safety of all our guests and crew, we’ll ask health questions required by Transport Canada, take your temperature without contact and ensure that you wear a mask on your flight. Please bring your own mask. 

Safety on board

We've implemented new cleaning processes, including fogging to disinfect our aircraft and all aircraft are equipped with hospital-quality HEPA filters, which introduce fresh air into the cabin every 2 to 3 minutes so you can breathe a little easier as you fly with us.
