FLYGTA is ready to help Canadians return home during the COVID-19 pandemic and the increasing border closures by the Government of Canada. Its team and private jets are available to bring back stranded passengers from the US, the Caribbean and other Canadian locations, mostly affected by escalating flight cancellations from WestJet and Air Canada.
“We encourage other air operators to follow suit at this time of crisis and need,” says CEO Chris Nowrouzi. “This is a time where we all must come together and help Canadians. Passengers should expect to be screened for any symptoms prior to boarding and should not be alarmed by the extra measures taken.”
FLYGTA will utilise whatever airports remain open in Canada and will use only private terminals to help prevent the spread of the virus, while bringing Canadians to safety.
As a part of this programme, the company is reducing its standard rates for qualifying individuals who are in need and may require financial assistance. Travel agents and travellers are encouraged to contact FLYGTA via email only as the phone lines and offices of FLYGTA have been closed for the week and all staff are working remotely.
