Air Canada has been certified as a global champion for its commitment to the health and safety of customers and employees as it received the Diamond certification from APEX Health Safety. This recognizes the numerous initiatives Air Canada has taken since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the Air Canada CleanCare+ program.
As of January 2021, Air Canada is one of the first airlines in the world, and the only airline in Canada, to receive the Diamond accreditation. The Diamond certification means that Air Canada has been recognized for reaching hospital grade levels of biosecurity, measures that have been implemented since very early on during the pandemic.
Air Canada has been at the forefront of the airline industry in responding to COVID-19, including being among the first carriers globally to require customer face coverings onboard and the first airline in the Americas to check passengers’ temperatures prior to boarding.
