Air Canada has temporarily suspended all flights in and out of the West Kootenay Regional Airport until at least March 31, 2020.

Last week, Air Canada said travelers heading to and from Vancouver will temporarily be routed through Calgary between April 1-30, 2020 and the daily schedule for flights to and from Calgary would remain the same.

As a result of COVID-19, Air Canada is facing uncertainty and has had to make further adjustments to its schedule which resulted in the cancellations of all flights in and out of Castlegar until at least March 31, 2020.

Air Canada says its network planning group is constantly monitoring the situation and it will continue to monitor this evolving situation closely in consultation with the Public Health Agency of Canada, Transport Canada and Global Affairs and will adjust its schedule as appropriate.

“This cancellation of flights will have an impact on the airport and businesses operating out of the terminal building,” says Patrick Gauvreau, Airport Manager. “We’re working with the businesses to determine how this will impact their operations, particularly if this continues in the long-term.”
