New health & safety measures


Temperature screening

Transport Canada requires all departing passengers and all employees working post security at YLW to undergo a temperature check at security screening checkpoints. Learn more about these new measures.

Masks are required

Transport Canada has new requirements for face coverings in airports. Acceptable masks must cover the nose and mouth (fitted disposable or cloth masks). Face coverings with exhalation valves/vents, bandanas, neck gaiters and face shields are not permitted.

We’re asking that masks be worn at all times in the public areas of the terminal. Please ensure your mask is on prior to entering. Masks are not required to be worn by children under two years old and individuals with medical conditions that prevent mask usage. If you are unable to wear a mask for medical reasons, you will be required to provide a medical certificate. Visit the Transport Canada website for more information.

Healthy travel

We've implemented a series of new health and safety initiatives at YLW to ensure passengers can feel confident when travelling through the airport, and know what to expect before they arrive.

Safety measures now in effect at YLW:

  • Asking everyone who enters the terminal to wear a mask and sanitize their hands
  • Transport Canada requires all passengers who are unable to wear a mask for medical reasons to provide a medical certificate. Visit the Transport Canada website for more information.
  • Requesting passengers say goodbye to friends and family outside the terminal
  • Advising arriving passengers to collect their baggage and immediately exit the building
