Canada recently suspended flights from India and Pakistan to prevent the spread of B.1.617, a COVID-19 virus variant that was first identified in India.

The ban came almost three months after the federal government ordered all travellers flying into Canada to provide a negative COVID-19 test before boarding, but international flights carrying coronavirus-infected passengers are still touching down in Montreal, according to the federal government.

An additional 21 domestic flights with infected passengers landed in Montreal between April 13 and 24.
