In order to limit the spread of the coronavirus (2019-nCoV), an increasing number of countries are imposing quarantine or denying entry to visitors who have recently been to the People's Republic of China. If this is your case, it is your responsibility to check the entry restrictions of your destination country.

The situation is evolving rapidly and is beyond our control. We recommend that you regularly check the restrictions put in place by the border authorities of the country you are planning to visit. Please note, however, that Air Transat will not be held liable and will not assume any expense in the event that you are refused entry into your country of destination due to these restrictions.

Should you need to change your itinerary, please contact your travel agency or our 24/7 customer contact centre.
