The emergence of the Omicron variant will once again disrupt air travel as well as tourism and many flights around the world are canceled every day. Ironically, Canadians have never traveled much since the outbreak began.
“The Government of Canada publishes data on the number of passengers screened each day at security screenings at each Canadian airport. For the past three days, they have exceeded 100,000 passengers per day,” explained Andrew D’Amers, co-founder of the Flight Trippers site.
“These are the first 3 days since the epidemic started with 109,000, 105,000 and 102,000 passengers. We have crossed 100,000 once a day since the outbreak began. ”
In Montreal-Trudeau, on Monday, nearly fifty flights were canceled to sunny destinations or cities to the west. However, it does not prevent some passengers from flying.
“People are scared, but in a way, they leave because if they are well insured, they feel well protected,” Brigitte Tiano, director and president of Voyage Evasion Monde, told TVA Novelles.
⁇[D’autres voyageurs] They fear that the borders will be closed and that they will never return. This is a great concern of consumers; There is not much to leave. “
Decisively, Omicron has not bothered travelers since this variant arrived in the country at the end of 2021.
