Podcast: Tips for Flying to Canada

Aug. 16, 2021

After nearly 18 months of being essentially locked down to anyone from outside the country, Canada reopened its border on Aug. 9 to U.S. citizens vaccinated against COVID-19. However, there are also new requirements that business aircraft passengers and crew members must follow before heading north. “From what I’m seeing, you can expect [entry into Canada] to be a little slower than the good old days prior to COVID,” said Chad Patnode, flight operations manager at Pfizer, “but still faster than where it was during the throes of COVID-19.”
