Mandatory Face Masks/Coverings for Travelling Passengers

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.

When travelling by air, travellers will be asked to cover their mouth and nose:

  • at Canadian airport screening checkpoints, where the screeners cannot always keep two metres of separation between themselves and the traveller;
  • when they cannot physically distance from others, or as directed by the airline employees; and
  • when directed to do so by a public health order or public health official.

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

The Public Health Agency of Canada is now recommending wearing a non-medical mask in the community even if you have no symptoms, as an additional measure to protect others around you.  Skyxe continues to evolve guidelines in order to maintain our commitment to keeping our community safe.  We recommend and strongly encourage all passengers, suppliers, visitors, and tenant employees wear a mask or face covering while in all public areas of the airport terminal building.  Masks are mandatory in washrooms or in any space in which a 2-meter distance from others cannot be maintained. 

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.
