Travel | The Ottawa recommendations create confusion

Types of COVID-19, isolated rules, testing and changing officers’ recommendations confuse Canadian travelers.


Marty Firestone, the boss of travel insurance company TravelSecure, said passengers do not know what compulsory airport inspections and isolations do, not to mention other measures accepted in other countries.

Many customers change destination due to excitement or cancel their vacation plan.

John McKenna, CEO of the Air Transport Association of Canada, is calling on the federal government to better communicate its direction as thousands of Canadians are canceling their trips.

Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos said on Friday that passengers should expect delays at airports. He added that the situation could get worse.

The government has not recommended avoiding non-essential flights overseas, as it did until October 21, but warns Canadians to “be extra careful.” The Omicron variant of COVID-19 has been identified in more than 50 countries.
