YYZ-BOM, on the other hand, had been removed for the winter.

Before: 7x 77W DEL, 4x 77L BOM
After: 10x 789 DEL

Update was done earlier this week, on Wednesday

WS adding YYZ-DUB next summer, bringing its total TATL offering from YYZ to 5. Flights up to 1x daily on a 7M8.

Still no word on what's planned with the additional 787s coming in.

It's been a year now that B787 deliveries have been halted. There is a backlog of over 100 undelivered B787s. An Aug 2nd FAA inspection didn't pass muster. New tentative date of resolution is late October. Let's see if it will pan out.

Westjet probably still doesn't have a firm date of when it will receive it's frames. The lack of announcement of new routes on the dreamliner most certainly reflects that. Boeing really needs to get its shit together !

WS may just announce the 787 routes in November then. They'll probably still get the frames by May to start new routes anyways.

I'd imagine they'd at least get 1-2 by June to start at least one new route. Although they may be working to get slots to keep AMS instead.

Today marks the restoration of PD's full year-round network with the return of YFC, YSJ, YQG, YTS and YAM...but still at far fewer frequencies vs pre-pandemic.

This was reported pre-pandemic as well, so glad to see Ethiopian's plans to launch YUL are still in the works.

GebreMariam also revealed that there are talks ongoing with relevant bodies in Canada to start Montreal (YUL) flights via Dublin (DUB).

Mandatory COVID-19 vaccination requirements for federally regulated transportation employees and travellers

From: Transport Canada

Backgrounder
October 6, 2021

Vaccine requirements for travellers

Effective October 30, air passengers departing from Canadian airports, travellers on VIA Rail and Rocky Mountaineer trains, and travellers on non-essential passenger vessels on voyages of 24 hours or more, such as cruise ships, will need to be vaccinated.

Effective October 30, travellers will need to be fully vaccinated in order to board. Specifically, the vaccination requirement will apply to all travellers 12 years of age and older who are:

Air passengers flying on domestic, transborder or international flights departing from airports in Canada
  • Air passengers flying on domestic, transborder or international flights departing from airports in Canada
  • Rail passengers on VIA Rail and Rocky Mountaineer trains
  • Marine passengers on non-essential passenger vessels, such as cruise ships, on voyages of 24 hours or more

For travellers who are in the process of being vaccinated, there will be a short transition period where they will be able to travel if they can show a valid COVID-19 molecular test within 72 hours of travel. By November 30, all travellers must be fully vaccinated, with very limited exceptions to address specific situations such as emergency travel, and those medically unable to be vaccinated.

This, along with a whole host of other stuff, banks on the government allowing international flights at the final batch of airports that are still barred.

AC announced YOW-YTZ 4x daily starting October 31st and increasing to 8x daily sometime next summer: https://www.newswire.ca/news-release...809428921.html

I wonder if AC have at last decided to split their 15 YTZ slots between YUL and YOW or whether Porter have relinquished some YTZ slots?

YOW-YTZ is 4x daily in November and YUL-YTZ is 5x daily but in December it goes back to 15x daily. Maybe they haven't updated schedules yet?

Didn't see it when I checked the schedule last week. Maybe I just missed it, or AC now update booking site before schedule?

The new YTZ-YOW route haven't show up in schedule it..

Domestic AC is a dummy schedule...beyond the new YTZ-YOW route. For example the YYZ Rapidair routes almost double in capacity between Nov. 30th and Dec. 1st. That's not going to happen.

AC had not really updated schedule beyond Nov 30th for most of the route that was not suspended. But schedule on or before Nov 30th are mostly set, save for some last minute reductions and cancellations...

Looks like COVID has shifted the chairs on who is flying where. YVR has been picking up new airlines with new routes while some of the old ones stay suspended.

The latest addition is Singapore Airlines.

Interesting & not too surprising. Post covid Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal & Calgary Airports in Canada will gain more/new routes as it’s where most passengers demand is✅!

Interesting. Ryan Yang is mentioned. He's a cargo manager for Swissport. So still unclear if this is a passenger flight or a cargo run. Although I'm suspecting the former.

I think they just removed the post a second ago !

With the lack of YVR-Asia/Australia passenger flights at the moment, SQ might be trying to capitalize on all the VFR demand from Canada to SE Asia/Australia, etc.

Let's see what happens.
