What to expect regarding COVID-19 when traveling with Air Inuit.

In order to improve safety standards and focus on preventive measures throughout our operations, Air Inuit, following the directives of the Canadian, Quebec and Nunavik authorities, has implemented measures to ensure the security of its passengers. You will therefore notice changes in customer service and in-flight services resulting from these measures.

Following a suspension of the Transport Canada vaccination mandate, vaccination will no longer be required to board our flights as of June 20, 2022.

This is also applicable to domestic charter flights. 

Please note that vaccination is proven to be very effective in preventing severe illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. If you are not vaccinated please consider getting vaccinated before travelling. For more information, please visit: Vaccines for COVID-19 - Canada.ca

Altough Transport Canada suspends the mandatory mask measure as of October 1, 2022, Air Inuit still strongly encourages its passengers to wear one.

Wearing a mask continues to be a basic, visible, and low-cost measure for mitigating the spread of COVID-19 and has proven to be highly effective during all sections of the traveller’s journey, particularly when physical distancing is not possible.

Air Inuit will continue to ask, during the check-in process, if passengers have symptoms of COVID-19, even if mild, have recently tested positive for COVID-19, or are in quarantine or isolation. If yes, they will not be allowed to board the flight.

If you are sick, especially with a fever and/or cough, please consider adjusting your travel plans; this will help limit the spread of viruses.

We continue to emphasize to our internal and external grooming crews to pay particular attention to the cleaning and sanitization of aircraft interior chair tables, armrests, seatbelt buckles, walls, handles and lavatories for those equipped aircraft.

Our crews have access to sanitizing products in case of particular situations, or when they deemed necessary.

In addition, for the health and safety of our employees and other passengers and in accordance with government legislations, we reiterate the importance that all passengers with COVID-19 do NOT travel on Air Inuit flights.

Some people may continue to wear masks, and others may not. It is important that crew and travellers who elect to continue to wear a mask based on their respective risk calculations feel respected and supported.

Stay up to date on your local health measures; requirements can change and/or be re-instated quickly if required. Please consult COVID-19: Provincial and territorial resources - Canada.ca for more specific regional information within Canada.

We take this opportunity to reiterate some important travel information:

  • Air Inuit’s Zero tolerance policy continues to be enforced by our team.
  • Don’t forget your ID to travel.
  • Be on time! Check-in cut-off times will be enforced to ensure on-time departures.
