Passenger numbers for Q2 reflect the continued recovery from the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic as passengers take advantage increased frequencies and new services offered by WestJet and Air Canada. Although travel restrictions have eased, passengers are reminded that federal regulations require masks be worn during security screening, the boarding process and during their flight.
During this busy travel season, passengers are also reminded that much of the global airline industry continues to experience challenges with baggage handling and flight interruptions. Some tips to avoid disappointment include packing light and if possible, travel only with carry-on baggage, checking your flight status for schedule changes, and monitoring flight connection times closely when booking to allow time for delays. We also encourage all passengers to complete their check-in online to decrease processing and wait times at the airport.
Kamloops Airport Ltd. continues enhanced disinfecting of high touch surfaces and encourages passengers to take the recommended precautions to avoid transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
