Air Canada to resume flights in Smithers Oct 1

Air Canada is returning to the Smithers Regional Airport as of Thursday (Oct 1).

The airline will offer four flights a week on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Airport Manager Rob Blackburn said new protocols have been put in place and staff is prepared to welcome travelers.

“Masks must be worn inside the terminal, only persons traveling are permitted inside the airport and folds dropping off and picking up must do so in the parking lot,” he said.

Blackburn added extra cleaning and sanitization will be ongoing and hand sanitizer stations have been installed at all entrances.
