Air Canada Resumes Operations after Hurricane

With the passage of Hurricane Irma, Air Canada is resuming normal operations to affected destinations, the company said.

Full service to Florida began September 13 and regularly scheduled flights have started to operate to most Caribbean destinations.

Additionally, a goodwill policy remains in effect for customers to delay or change flights without charge.

Preparations are underway to resume service to Miami, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and the next regularly scheduled flights to Fort Myers on Friday, September 15, and Sarasota, on Saturday, September 16.

Customers are advised that aircraft are very full on outgoing flights from Florida and, while Air Canada is adding additional capacity, space may be limited initially. However, Air Canada is committed to add extra capacity in order to transport customers who wish to travel.

Air Canada resumed to Havana on September 13. Other destinations in Cuba remain cancelled with plans to resume services to most destinations in the coming days, subject to the safety and security of airports and infrastructure. The airports serving Cayo Coco and Santa Clara are presently closed until September 25, 2017.
