Air Canada is suspending its service to several Caribbean destinations including St. Vincent and the Grenadines. 

This was confirmed in a TRAVEL ADVISORY posted on the company’s website on January 5.

These suspensions will take effect on January 24 until April 30, 2022.

The suspensions come just weeks after the airline resumed flights to St. Vincent and the Grenadines on December 6, 2021.

The other affected Caribbean destinations include Antigua and Barbuda, Curacao, Aruba, Exuma, Grenada, Bermuda, Grand Cayman, Santo Domingo, Cuba, Saint Maarten and St Kitts and Nevis

The service to Samana and Puerto Plata have also been suspended.

Air Canada said to help ensure that Canadians are not stranded abroad, they plan to operate a number of one-way commercial flights from affected destinations in order to return customers at the suspended destinations to Canada. 

Travellers affected by the temporary suspension have been given the assurance that full refunds will be issued.

Air Canada said its team will be contacting any impacted customers and processing refunds in order of departure date. Eligible customers will receive an invoice as confirmation of their refund once it has been issued.

Travellers are reminded that travel restrictions remain in place and as such, they must present proof of vaccination and have a negative COVID-19 test before boarding an international flight bound for Canada.
