The country has, however, decided to not renew the flight ban between Canada and Pakistan which means that passengers flight will start their operations soon.
Travellers from Pakistan will be required to get a COVID-19 test prior to boarding a flight to Canada.
On May 21, Canada had banned direct passenger flights from Pakistan and India after increased Covid-19 cases were detected in travellers arriving from these countries.
All travellers to Canada are subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine. They must also present a negative Covid test before boarding an international flight, and another upon arrival in Canada.
