For the third time in 10 days, so many passengers on an Air Transat flight from Port-au-Prince to Montreal tested positive for COVID-19 that Health Canada deemed the entire plane impacted by the virus.
On Wednesday, Health Canada added TS663 — which landed in Montreal on Jan. 17 — to its online list of COVID-impacted flights. Two other flights from Haiti earlier this month —TS663 and TS665— were deemed to have all rows affected by passengers who subsequently tested positive for the virus.
As of Jan. 20, 139 flights with at least one COVID-19 infected passenger landed in Canada since Jan. 7, when negative COVID-19 tests were made mandatory for all Canada-bound flights.
