At least three more flights with confirmed COVID-19 cases have landed at Pearson Airport in Mississauga within the past several days, according to the federal government’s travel data.

Two of the flights were domestic (within Canada), landing on October 18 and 20 respectively.

The third flight was international, landing from abroad on October 19.

At least 10 rows were affected, with one flight reporting unknown rows.

Since September 9, 2021, the province no longer reports all flights affected by COVID-19 at Pearson Airport to Canada Public Health.

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.

All flight data is listed on the federal government’s website.
