Mandatory Face Masks/Coverings for Travelling Passengers

The Saskatoon Airport Authority continues to take our direction from the Canadian Government and Sask Health Authority. 

Transport Canada requires all air passengers to have a non-medical mask or face covering to cover their mouth and nose during travel. These measures came into effect at noon EDT on April 20, 2020.

As of November 6 at 12:01 am, the Government of Saskatchewan made the use of non-medical masks mandatory in indoor places in Saskatoon, including airports.  Guests are also required to wear non-medical masks through screening.

NOTE:  Masks with exhalation valves are not permitted for use.

If you forget to bring a face covering, masks are available for purchase at Relay post-security as well as in a vending machine pre-security.
