Four more flights were recently affected by COVID-19 at Pearson Airport in Mississauga, according to the federal government’s travel data.

On June 17, one flight departed the airport for Calgary.

From June 18 to 19, three flights landed at Pearson from abroad.

At least 34 rows were affected by COVID-19 across all four flights, including 20 rows on one international flight.

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.
