Air Canada says it will restore some service along routes to Jamaica, Mexico and Barbados beginning in early May.

This after airlines suspended all flights to sun destinations in January at the request of the Canadian Government.

Air Canada will operate three flights per week from Toronto to Mexico City starting May 3, and one flight per week from Toronto to Kingston, Jamaica, and Bridgetown, Barbados beginning May 5 and May 9, respectively.

The suspension on flights to sun destinations was intended to last until April 30.

Air Canada said in its most recent earnings call in February that it expected the federal government to replace some quarantine measures for international travellers with a testing programme at airports by the time the suspensions were scheduled to lift.

In addition to flights to sun destinations, Air Canada also suspended some routes to the US and other countries earlier this year due to low demand for travel.

The airline plans to restore some routes, including Vancouver to Tokyo as of May 1, Toronto to Hong Kong as of May 6, and Toronto to Bogota as of May 7.
