WestJet Offers New Covid-19 Tests At Vancouver Airport – Travel Off Path

Rapid Antigen Tests Could Prove Useful

Under the YVR program, WestJet will offer British Columbians on domestic flights from Vancouver the opportunity to take a rapid antigen test on arrival at the airport and before travel.

If the test result is negative, passengers will be permitted to board the plane following established COVID-19 health protocols. If they return a positive test, passengers will not be allowed to travel and will be required to take further health screening measures to confirm their COVID-19 status. Those positive testing will be allowed to rebook or cancel their flight for themselves and all members of their booking party at no extra cost.
