Air Canada Vacations has once again expanded its flight offerings including new non-stop flights from Calgary to Cancun and Puerto Vallarta. The move comes as no surprise as the Canadian government announced reduced quarantines in lieu of COVID-19 testing starting on November 2nd at the Calgary International Airport. 

Last month 17 additional non-stop flights were added from Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver to the Caribbean and Mexico.

Additionally, Air Canada Vacations has added non-stop flights operating twice weekly from Calgary to Puerto Vallarta departing Fridays and Sundays.  

Calgary Offers Reduced Quarantines Upon Returning Home 

A new pilot project for Canada has been launched at the Calgary International Airport that will drop the mandatory quarantine in lieu of Rapid COVID-19 testing. 

The federal government of Canada, along with the provincial government in Alberta, have jointly announced that a new pilot program launched in Alberta will see the mandatory 14-day quarantine greatly reduced to around 48 hours for travelers returning home. 

For example, a Calgarian traveler could take a vacation to Puerto Vallarta and upon returning home be released from quarantine within 48 hours if test results are negative.
