The affected flights are:

  • Oct. 1: Air Transat flight 770 from Montreal to Vancouver (affected rows: 11 to 17)
  • Oct. 8: Air Canada flight 242 from Vancouver to Edmonton (affected rows: 4 and 12 to 16)
  • Oct. 8: Air Canada/Jazz flight 8241 from Terrace to Vancouver (affected rows: 13 to 17)

Passengers on a domestic flight with a COVID-19 case are advised to self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days.

Meanwhile, people arriving into Canada from outside of the country are required to self-isolate for 14 days under the federal Quarantine Act.

Information on affected rows is posted when it’s available, and passengers seated in these rows “should be considered to be at higher risk of exposure due to their proximity to the case,” according to the BCCDC.

The full list of flight exposures can be found on the BCCDC’s website.
