Cancellations, departures and arrivals are equally divided, with about 20 flights being canceled for Air Canada flights.

Flights to Flyer, United Airlines and WestJet were also affected by the cancellation.

In addition, many flights have minor delays, especially due to weather conditions.

Elsewhere in the world where thousands of flights have been canceled since Christmas, Canadian carriers are increasingly caught up in the consequences of the spread of the Omicron variant, which disrupts schedules.

In particular, the Alberta carrier WestJet announced on December 30 that 15% of its flights scheduled for January would have to be canceled because many employees were infected or in contact with sick people.

“In addition to freezing temperatures and manpower shortages in western Canada, we could not imagine the rapid and unpredictable impact of the Omicron variant on our people and operations. Despite our contingency plan […] We can no longer estimate the resources for our schedule, ”said Harry Taylor, interim president and CEO of WestJet.
