Pearson Airport in Mississauga opens up to inbound American travelers on Monday

Not since the War of 1812 has Canada ever been this prepared for an invasion of American hordes.

However, rather than soldiers holding bayonets coming north-bound by foot, this time it will be luggage as Pearson International Airport in Mississauga announced yesterday it is opening its doors to fully-vaccinated America travelers as of Monday (August 9).

That said, with a large influx of Americans likely landing at Pearson in the near future, the airport has warned that travelers can expect delays – potentially up to three hours – as it could take longer to carry out the usual airport routine due to additional health screenings for COVID-19.

The airport said yesterday that during peak times, American passengers may have to wait in a separate area of the terminal building until there’s available space in the Canada Customs area.

Another time-taking fly-in-the-ointment will be the fact that the airport’s operations may be additionally affected as a result of the strike by CBSA workers taking place, and that travellers should take it into consideration, as well.
