As of Saturday, people taking domestic flights in Canada will have to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, or a negative PCR test no older than 72 hours, if asked.
Then come November 30th a PCR test will no longer be accepted and travelers will simply have to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Justin Reves, Manager of Customer Experience and Marketing with the Regina Airport, said the gold standard right now is Saskatchewan’s MySaskHealth Record with the QR code.
“But, something that has your name, date of birth, dates of vaccination and types of vaccines given works just as well for the time being,” Reves added.
Reves said those who are asked to provide documents will either be approached at check in or while boarding the airplane.
“You may get asked at check-in when you go through pre-board screening, remember it’s random right now so not every person will be asked to show,” he said.
These rules will also now apply to domestic travelers taking boats and trains.
Similar rules are already in place for those taking international flights.
