NAV CANADA has announced that, beginning August 18, 2020, it will restore regular nighttime air navigation services at five locations in Atlantic Canada, the company said.
This decision was made after considering both the regional public health environment and operational requirements.
In May 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic NAV CANADA temporarily suspended overnight air navigation services at 18 facilities, including air traffic control towers, flight service stations and locations which receive remote airport aerodrome advisory service. These measures reduced the exposure of NAV CANADA´s essential employees to the coronavirus, while ensuring that critical air navigation services remained available when they were most needed.
NAV CANADA is a private, not-for-profit company, established in 1996, providing air traffic control, airport advisory services, weather briefings and aeronautical information services for more than 18 million square kilometres of Canadian domestic and international airspace.
