The mandates may be reinstated later, especially in the case of a surge of a new variant, the source, who was not authorised to speak on the record, said. International travelers coming to Canada still will be required to show proof of vaccination. The government, which has faced criticism over ongoing pandemic restrictions, may bring back the vaccine mandate if a new variant of the virus is discovered, the report added. Unvaccinated people departing from Canada will be allowed to travel, the source said. There were 814 total new infections, a slight dip from the two-month high of 851 recorded on Saturday. Related: Canada to suspend random COVID-19 testing to reduce airport wait times The mandates for domestic travel and the civil service have been in place since Oct 30 of last year, about a month after Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau won a third election in part by promising to take a hard line on vaccinations. Last week for the rest of June to ease long waiting times that travellers have been facing. Spurred by the mandate, 95 per cent of public employees confirmed they had received two shots of a COVID-19 vaccine. PREPARATIONS, BENEFITS FOR PASSENGERS To prepare for the resumption of scheduled flights, Changi Airport Group (CAG), which manages Seletar Airport, conducted “multiple operational trials and systems tests” with Seletar’s airport partners, said CAG and Firefly in a joint press release.

This summer, with infections declining, most provinces have dropped even their masking requirements, and the Trudeau government has come under increasing pressure from the opposition and industry to relax its mandates more broadly. More On This Topic. The number of passenger flights arriving daily in Hong Kong has accordingly doubled to 38 in June, up from 19 in April before most of the easing was implemented, according to data from the Airport Authority and Webb-Site. The travel mandates have also been blamed by some airline industry officials for lengthening already long wait times at airports. In recent weeks, Toronto's Pearson airport has had planes stuck at gates and hours-long security lines because of staffing shortages. Last week Canada said random testing would be suspended at all airports until Jul 1, also with an eye on reducing airport congestion. The rise in both overall infections and imported cases will pose a test for the government currently preparing for the 25th anniversary of the city's handover to China on July 1. The government will hold a news conference later on Tuesday to announce the suspension of the mandates, news that was first reported late on Monday by the Toronto Star and the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. "With Firefly flights back, travellers can once against enjoy convenient connections between Seletar Airport and Kuala Lumpur," said Mr Tan Lye Teck, executive vice president of airport management at CAG.
