SAN DIEGO — Travelers will soon be able to fly nonstop to Vancouver out of San Diego.

Air Canada is bringing back the nonstop service Aug. 1 between Vancouver International Airport and San Diego International Airport. The airline said it will offer the nonstop flights once daily year-round.

The flights return after Air Canada suspended the service in March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Canadian government announced earlier this month that it would begin letting fully vaccinated U.S. citizens into Canada on Aug. 9, and those from the rest of the world on Sept. 7.

Officials with the San Diego airport said with limited exceptions, all travelers must use ArriveCAN to submit their travel information. Travelers coming into Canada, regardless of vaccination status, will need a negative PCR or molecular test within 72 hours of requesting entry.
