Air Canada suspended flights to and from Italy, after ongoing health and safety concerns related to the outbreak of coronavirus.
Air Canada said to restart the flights to Italy from May 1, and offered full refund for the affected customers.
In January, Air Canada halted flights to mainland China braced for a hit in revenue.
In the meantime, WestJet said it is temporarily changing its policy on flight cancellations and changes.
Customers who have booked their flight between March 3 and 31 now have the ability to change their flight without applicable change fees. As well, the normal change and cancel restrictions have been temporarily removed for people who booked basic fare for travel beginning on or before March 31.
“Earlier today, I spoke with the CEOs of WestJet and Air Canada about the impact COVID-19 is having on air travel. We will continue to be in touch and work together, along with other businesss & sectors affected by the spread of this virus.” said the Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
