Air Canada Vacations are returning in June to popular locations such as Mexico, Cuba and Jamaica.
The following letter was sent to travel agents Thursday night from Nino Montagnese. Managing Director at Air Canada Vacations.
“Over the last few months, we’ve all been dealing with the unprecedented circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. While the rapid evolution of the crisis has meant that we’ve had to be more agile in planning for the future, we believe we are all eager to begin restoring travel very soon.
“To that end, we are pleased to share that the operating schedule for June is now available on aircanada.com.
While the schedule is still a reduction to what we are used to during this time of year, Air Canada will be offering service to certain key destinations including, Cancún, Barbados, Varadero, Cayo Coco, Montego Bay, Paris, Athens and Barcelona, among many others.
“With this letter, we have attached our most recent FAQ that will answer any of your questions regarding changes to the June operating schedule. With the safety of customers and employees a core value for our organization, on Monday, Air Canada CleanCare+ was announced.
This is an industry-leading program committed to end-to-end health and safety protocols aimed at ensuring travellers can fly with confidence. In line with this program, Air Canada Vacations continues to work resolutely to ensure all our partners, from hoteliers to ground handlers, are putting in place appropriate safety practices that meet our highest standards of quality and cleanliness.

I know many, as well as myself, are anxious to be allowed to travel again, but is travelling now really worth it? Especially when you are forced into a 14 day isolation upon returning to Canada. I read on the government of Canada they are trying to enforce up to a $750,000 fine or up to 6 months in prison for those who do not follow the Quarantine Act.
Wouldn't it be better to wait?

Cuba has the best beaches, friendliest staff, in terms of medical they are the best in the world. Cuban people are well educated . Hotels are clean comfortable and the service is amazing even the food. If u book a cheap hotel u will get what u paid for. 4star or 5 stars only , don’t book 2 or 3 stars . I’ve travelled to so many countries in the world and 12 times to Cuba. Ive tried the cheap hotels and the nice hotels. Cuba is a paradise

I don’t even know why anyone would want to travel right now. I don’t even understand why they are allowing this. They say non-essential travel leaving Canada is not allowed but now this?! Makes no sense. I would want to wait until a treatment/vaccine is released to take a trip. Also the amount of safety procedures you would have to follow, worth it to just wait.
