While it is unclear whether it will resume operations on May 22, the two respective governments will mutually plan out the final call. Meanwhile, Air Canada was busy operating special flights in the U.S. and other locations to rescue stranded Canadians.

Following the initial announcement of U.S.-Canada travel restrictions on March 21, Air Canada maintained limited service to 11 U.S. destinations from its three Canadian hubs, primarily to facilitate the repatriation of Canadians

The effects of COVID-19 has been felt heavily by the global aviation market, with no immediate recovery in sight.
