Airline travellers may be subject to measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 as required by the provincial or territorial government with jurisdiction at the destination airport for that flight or by the Canadian federal government. You may be denied boarding if you do not meet certain health requirements such as health checks, mandatory face masks or face coverings and mandatory temperature screening. For more details, please consult the Government of Canada COVID-19: Travel Restrictions, Exemptions and Advice website.
As travel requirements are changing rapidly as a result of COVID-19, it is the traveller’s responsibility to regularly check the restrictions put in place by the border authorities of the country you are planning to visit as well as the Government of Canada website. This includes travel restrictions and self-isolation plans as required under Canadian federal, provincial and territorial jurisdiction. Travellers may also be subject to health screenings, including temperature checks upon arrival to their holiday destination, as well as prior to boarding their return flight to Canada. Sunwing will not be responsible for, and will not assume, any expense in the event that you are refused entry into your country of destination or denied travel on your return flight due to these restrictions.
Information for foreign nationals
An increasing number of countries, including Canada, are denying entry to foreign nationals. Air carriers, including Sunwing Airlines, will only be able to allow boarding to people who are authorized to enter Canada. If you are a foreign national with Canada as your final destination, with the emergency order under the Quarantine Act, you will be asked to declare that you are aware of the emergency order and that, to the best of your knowledge, you are not prohibited from entry into Canada. Please read the relevant Emergency Order prior to booking a reservation or prior to arriving at the airport as you will need to confirm you have read the document before boarding your flight. Providing false or misleading information could result in a monetary penalty.
