Pursuant to a review of the case history involving a passenger on WestJet flight 3456 from Toronto (YYZ) to Moncton (YQM) on April 27, we have been advised that Alberta Health, the New Brunswick Department of Health, as well as the Public Health Agency of Canada have determined that the passenger in question was medically fit to fly and was not infectious.

Our entire community sends a huge “Thank you!” to the @CFSnowbirds for their flyover around Greater #Moncton and the Maritimes! We needed a pick-me-up! Their precision and skill are second to none!

A message from Bernard LeBlanc, CEO of the Greater #Moncton International Airport Authority: “The impact on the operations at #MonctonYQM as a result of the current COVID-19 crisis is profound.”


Please be advised that the Greater Moncton International Airport Authority’s (GMIAA) Annual General Meeting scheduled for today, has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
