Last week, PAX joined executives, suppliers, travel advisors and tourism partners on an exclusive flight to get a first-hand look at the health and safety protocols Air Canada, as well as the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, has introduced in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Boarding a brand new, two-week-old Airbus A220 aircraft (a model that Air Canada first introduced in January), participants flew from Toronto Pearson International to Montreal Pierre Elliott Trudeau airports, and back, and witnessed everything that is making air travel safe again.
