Air Canada, which has already significantly curtailed its schedule amidst the novel coronavirus outbreak, said Tuesday it will temporarily suspend transborder service to and from the United States on April 27.

The move comes after the United States and Canada said on Tuesday that the two would extend the current border restrictions by an additional 30 days. The current restrictions went into effect on March 21, 2020.

Since then, Air Canada has operated a limited schedule to and from 11 U.S. cities from its three hubs in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver.  These flights were primarily to allow for the repatriation of Canadian citizens. The final commercial flight from the United States to Canada will take place on April 26.

The Canadian flag carrier said it plans to resume transborder service on May 22, 2020.
