Vaccine Passports on Layover

Over the past few weeks some destinations that we fly to have instituted a proof of vaccination process to enter certain venues, including but not limited to restaurants and fitness facilities. With a few Canadian provinces now implementing similar policies and/or vaccination “passports” we would encourage all our members who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to carry proof of vaccination with them while on duty in order to have full access to restaurants and other amenities on layover.

For example, the province of Quebec, as of today, requires that out-of-province visitors must show photo ID and proof issued by their country or Canadian province that they have had two doses of one of the following recognized vaccines to access a variety of non-essential services:

  • Pfizer
  • Moderna
  • AstraZeneca
  • Covishield
  • Janssen/Johnson & Johnson (only one dose required)

Take-away meal service and room service remains available to those not fully-vaccinated at all destinations, as do essential services.
