Flair Airlines has announced it is complying with Canada´s minister of transports requirement that all air travelers in Canada wear a removable non-medical mask or face covering to cover their mouth and nose during travel, the company said.
The requirement is an effort to flatten the COVID-19 curve.
Flair requires all passengers to wear non-medical masks or face coverings upon arrival at airports as physical distancing will not always be possible prior to departure; passengers will be required to confirm that they have a non-medical mask or face covering in their possession prior to boarding.
To support passengers in adjusting to these new requirements, Flair Airlines customer service agents will have complimentary non-medical masks available at check-in counters for passengers unable to provide their own.
Masks must be worn at airport screening checkpoints, during the entire flight when within 2 metres or less from another passenger who is not from the same household, and as directed by an official of Flair, the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority, a Canada Border Services Agency Officer, or a Canadian Public Health Official.
Flair Airlines is a Canadian independent low-fare carrier with a summer schedule that includes Vancouver, Kelowna, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax, Charlottetown, and Saint John.
