MONTREAL - Holiday travel company Transat AT is bringing its customers and employees in Mexico back to Canada and postponing any further flights after the swine flu alert level was raised.
The company says it made the decision after the World Health Organization raised the level of the swine flu alert to Phase 4.
Transat says its currently scheduled return flights will leave Mexico as scheduled and it will add some extra flights out at a later time.
Flights into Mexico from Canada and France will be postponed until June 1 and May 31 respectively.
Customers booked for future trips with Air Transat, Transat Holidays, Nolitours, Vacances Transat and Look Voyages scheduled to fly to Mexico between now and June 1 can change their travel plans with no additional charges.
Canada has joined the list of countries advising against travel to Mexico because of the swine flu outbreak. The advisory from the Public Health Agency of Canada says any non-essential travel to Mexico should be postponed until further notice.
