Starting Oct. 30 North-Wright Air will require passengers to provide proof of vaccination status before boarding.

The airline made the announcement in a press release, stating it is following the federal government’s legislation that passengers will need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to fly domestically.

“Our number one goal, and always will be our passengers safety,” the release reads.

Passengers in the process of being vaccinated will need to provide proof they have received a single shot as well as a negative COVID test within 72 hours of their scheduled flight. This will only be in place until Nov. 30, after that only proof of vaccination status will be accepted.

North-Wright Air says there will be limited exceptions, these will be for emergency travel and those unable to receive the vaccine for medical reasons. However, the release says people will need to contact public health to receive an exemption letter for these situations.

Residents can reach out to their health centre to receive a copy of their proof of vaccine.
