Six more flights land with COVID-19 cases at Pearson Airport

Published June 30, 2021 at 5:00 pm

The federal government is reporting 10 recent flights with cases of COVID-19 at Pearson Airport in Mississauga, of which four departed and six landed.

Three of the flights were domestic, departing the airport from June 21 to 23.

The remaining flights were international, with six landing at Pearson and one departing between June 23 and 26.

At least 44 rows are affected across all 10 flights, with some flights reporting unknown rows.

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.

“Unknown” rows may be reported if  the row number for the person confirmed to have COVID-19 can’t be validated, or if a member of the crew is confirmed to have COVID-19.

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.
