Another 7 flights with 38 rows affected land with COVID-19 at Pearson Airport in Mississauga
Pearson Airport recently saw 10 new flights with COVID-19 cases, seven of which landed at the airport and three of which departed.
According to the federal government’s data, there were seven domestic flights (within Canada) arriving at or departing Pearson between May 3 and 5.
There were three international flights which all landed at Pearson from abroad on May 2 to 4.
At least 38 rows were affected across all 10 flights. The affected rows on some flights are currently unknown.
Effective April 22, the federal government has suspended incoming passenger flights from India and Pakistan for a month as cases of COVID-19 surged in both countries.
According to the federal government, a row is considered affected if it’s three rows (two rows for business class) behind or in front of a row where a seated person is confirmed to have COVID-19 “during a period when they may have been infectious to others.”
Passengers who were sitting in the affected rows — or all passengers on the flight if rows aren’t specified — are advised to self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days and contact public health if they start showing symptoms of the virus.
All flight data is listed on the federal government’s website.
