Air Canada Suspending Flights into Antigua and Barbuda


Dear Nationals and Friends,

The Consulate General wishes to forward for your attention, the attached letter concerning the upcoming suspension of Air Canada flights to Antigua and Barbuda.

The Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Board has been advised that Air Canada/Air Canada Vacations has made the decision to suspend flights to Antigua as of January 31st, 2022.


The Canadian Federal Government Advisory to Canadians to avoid all non-essential travel, has made it challenging for the airline to maintain its previously announced flight schedule leading to the suspension.


The airline will be working on cancelling each passenger’s file in order of departure dates over the next month and asked for our co-operation and patience.


Air Canada has expressed their appreciation for our understanding during these difficult times which are impacting the entire travel sector.


They have shared their confidence that the travel industry will continue to be resilient and by working together, we can overcome this most recent setback.


We at the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority wish to thank you for your support as we look forward to the future with optimism.

Best Regards,
Tameka Wharton

    • This has nothing to to with Antigua. It has to do with are Canadian government who have advised people not to travel. We are seeing %90 plus of are positive cases in fully Vax people. The numbers have the Government with egg on there face , with well over %80 of the population fully Vax. And a 30-40% positive rate. They have now stop testing any one who wants a test. Only the most Vulnerable will be tested.

      • @Bad writing and grammar skills….u “grammar” nice! They might even lump you in with the 😎🧐🤓🥸🤣😇conspiracists! Say what, “egg on there face!”
        …That shit cannot be! It’s some #Fake #Egg shyt! You know, the powdered kind mixed with water, and used as make up, for the blockbuster, academy awards winner movie “da Roaring 20’s”…Starring COVID-19 and the Mutating Wuhan Ninja Virues…

        Let this make sense, to me!
        The #fully #vaxxed and #BOOSTED, those who are or were allowed to mingle have become the Super Spreaders!

        This is a joke 🙂🙃🤓😂😆🤨or #Fake #News…right?

        I’ll watch some Richard Pryor talking fuckery!
        I want to fucking channel this Niggah Pryor, and have him talk some shit about, all this fuckery, confusion, illusions!
        The #Beauty about this god damn #BEAST, is it’s just beginning to rare its head!

        COVID is the #New #Herpes! No inter-courses required! You’re slready logged in and tagged!

        • Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock!

          Is This Bad writing and grammar skills, Truth, Factual Reporting And The Antigua Way! “The Afrocentric method considers that no phenomena can be apprehended adequately without locating it first. A phenom must be studied and analyzed in relationship to psychological time and space. It must always be located. This is the only way to investigate the complex interrelationships of science and art, design and execution, creation and maintenance, generation and tradition, and other areas bypassed by theory.” – Dr. Molefi Asante, Afrocentricity, The Theory of Social Change!

          A good starting point may be to begin with the Genesis, Time Frame and Nomenclature of the “Spanish Flu!” Too many Bots are floating in the ether! “…There are too many idiots in this world. And having said it, I have the burden of proving it.” ― Frantz Fanon, Black Skin, White Masks!

          If more is required to authenticate, a further stroll down Scots Row into Eve’s Garden or East from Government House up to Lady Nugent’s to ascertain why the Mortality in Antigua Plummeted yet the Economy Hummed Merrily along despite the quiet in the Graveyards would be an eye opener even though not enough to raise Lazarus! “The Afrocentric method considers phenomena to be diverse, dynamic, and in motion and therefore it is necessary for a person to accurately note and record the location of phenomena even in the midst of fluctuations. This means that the investigator must know where he or she is standing in the process.” – Asante!

          That the Canadian federal government issuing a strong advisory to Canadians not to travel abroad amid the Omicron variant outbreak is well documented! “In response to ongoing COVID-19 concerns Air Canada is temporarily suspending flights to Mexican and Caribbean destinations for 90 days, as of January 31. The decision, designed to achieve an orderly reduction in service and minimize customer impact, was taken in collaboration with the Government of Canada!”

          Here are the latest Official Canada Data and FACTS! Canadian Vaccination Numbers for one dose: 82% Total Population; 90% 12 years and older; 39% 5 – 12 years! Canadian Vaccination Numbers for Fully Vaccinated, 2 Doses: 76% Total Population; 87% 12 years and older; 1% 5 – 12 years!
          Confirmed Cases of Covid: 79.4 Unvaccinated; 4.8% Not yet Protected – which means they just got the vaccine; 5.8% Partially Vaccinated with one dose; 9.9% Fully Vaccinated! Only an idiotic, “hysterical Hypochondriac of History” and a boldface “vicar of vacillation” would change the official numbers, knowing fully well that the Data, Analysis and Information are transparently available to anyone who would take the time to research it!

          Friends, CountryWoMEN, Rastas, there are too many masqueraders constructing unreal truth from their experiences and circumstances, and as long as that goes unchallenged by facts, that unreal truth remains valid! However, As Mi Gud Frens Karma and Ras Smood would concede, when contrary facts arise, it must be published and then it becomes necessary for those poor “supercilious sophisticates” souls filled with “Ethical Badmindednesss” and “Resentiment” as defined by Antigua’s Dr Paget Henry and the Late Dr. Charles Ephraim respectively to change their unreal truth to accommodate the facts – often with significant psychological discomfort!

          “Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.” ― Frantz Fanon!

          • Hail John, I’m quite sure you say the word “illusions” and not Short Shirt’s kind.
            The more this virus morphs, the one and same which allegedly came from the #Bat world to #Man’s world, due to someone eating Bat Soup, the more this whole fucking scripted shit is fertilising HUEman behaviour like bat guana.

            I’m fully aware of ‘bots,’ and how they come from all angles just like #Media houses, as they slant the narrative, to fit the #Medium’s and the same oligarchs and plutocrats of Fanon’s days!

            I’m fully aware, of how data is being manipulated, again nothing new, as HUEmanity is once again, being moulded to fit a certain agendas.
            Don’t get me wrong, because “me nar look fu #Blak #Sheep, aftah dark,” cause it no mek sense!
            However, “common sense mek #Sense, so me kno dat de virus real, and true to rass!”

            Yes, yes, yes….
            A…the virus is real.
            B…the virus is deadly.
            C…vaccines/antidotes are needed.

            And, of course now, as many of us were preaching and emphasising, preventative medicines also works. Several drug manufacturers have gotten approval for their, before and after pills to do, the same exact thing which Herbal Tinctures do.

            …The pandemic has just completed a cycle!
            … the snake has bitten its tail?
            …so, #WHO’RE telling tall Tales
            …from, The Crypts!
            …as, they step out from the shadow
            …of, A Dream Within, A Dream!
            …for, to many ‘it’s what this pandemic mean.

          • I’ve read ANR for the longest while and still never understand what John French is talking about…. It’s like a rampage of letters and words which don’t amount to anything particularly relevant – other than the copied and pasted data….

          • Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock! To the Diasporan! This mere voice in the wilderness does not usually respond to, “Divestors” filled with “ethical badmindedness” and “ressentiment” because there is no Marking to engage in melee and “lubin ugly!” With the start of 2022 and the International Decade for People of African Descent going into its final years, follow along if the decade holds any meaning to you! If not, ignore the comments!

            How far removed are you from the Location’s Groundings in Time and Space! “It goes without saying that the Afrocentrist cannot function properly as a scientist or humanist if he or she does not adequately locate the phenom in time and space. This means that chronology is as important in some situations as location. The two aspects of analysis are central to any proper understanding of society, history, or personality.” – Dr. Molefi Asante, Afrocentricity, The Theory of Social Change!

            From the 40’s to the 60’s, The Late JF would travel the radius, diameter and circumference of the Rock spreading the word to the People of African Descent a la the Healer: “He who has ears to hear, let him hear”! You may wish to ask you forebears, who was the late JF and what was his vocation! “Get used to me, I am not getting used to anyone.” I shouted my laughter to the stars.”- Frantz Fanon!

            Here are three Historical Walking Tours and Referent Points for your next excursion! Take a short walk East from The Pier at the Bottom of Nevis Street to about 150 Yards, Locate and Ponder on your find of the “Barracoon!” Take a short walk along “Scots Row” going South from from Newgate Street to the “Bust” and locate “Eve’s Garden!” If You cannot find it, ask any of the Vendors at the Market! Finally, take a longer walk East from Government House along old Parham Road to YASCO and locate Lady Nugent’s! If you can’t find it ask the school children along the way! You will have then encountered our neglected education, inexplicable and unforgiveable desecrations! “The Afrocentric paradigm is a revolutionary shift in thinking proposed as a constructural adjustment to black disorientation, dislocation, decenteredness, and lack of agency.” – Asante!

  1. RAS, who brung you up? Your mouth is getting filthier and filthier, so nasty. Come on man, stop smokin’. It’s distorted your brain. Chupps.

    • @Kristi…please call Sexy Kamala and make a report, on my #my mouth, my phucking filthy mouth, and the crimes I committed.
      She would sure appreciate, these thick juicy lips before she gets to the inner sanctuary, of my filthy!
      Chill to fuck out, since when a word which has being used in billions of ways physically and mentally, turns you to fuck on, for a good phucking became so #filthy!
      I’ll surmise, that you’re of the feminine persuasion 💯💯💯no #fake shit, hair, nails, ass, tits nor clits, now if you do, do you fuck in them, or leave a trail for forensics to follow, as you get a good phucking?

      #Poetic #License #Matters!

      Question, would you do a little phuck scene with Dinero, after you sign a contract for some scenes, in #DADli?

        • @Gail…😆😀I must apologize for any inconvenience, that I may have caused you for missing our trip on the Mental Slave Express.

          However, Ms. Christian I can appreciate the fact, that you’ve consented to be my first #Concubine/Kip-Oman to reside with me, on that ward.

    • @ Kristi who the hell are you the moral police of ANR ?
      You and that Betty’s Ass I mean Hopeless always telling folks about their mouth.
      Why don’t you sit your ass down and be quiet.
      True definition of a dumb broads.

    • Like the Rastaman said Yes, yes, yes….
      A…the virus is real.
      B…the virus is deadly.
      C…vaccines/antidotes are needed.
      Actually MJ has been proven to enhance thinking.

  2. My wife and I are still planning to join all of the people of the Great Islands of Antigua and Barbuda this Jan. for a week. We worked very hard to get this trip to return for what will be our seventh visit and have made many friends during each visit. I is a sad time to hear that Air Canada will stop there flights. To be honest they were not our first choice but that is where we were left with. We work very hard on our farm to get a chance to take a break once a year. It long hours of work for fifty one weeks of the year and with the help of friends we are able to leave the farm behind for a week of beauty and friendly people. We are aware that my as many others that come to your island we are there lifeblood and how they make a living. We have done all we can to be safe we have all our shots and plan to have our masks ready to wear when needed. My question is how are people going to continue to have a decent life if they stop all the tours that come to the islands. Hoping to see you soon Tim S. On. Canada

  3. How Antigua people dunce so? This has nothing to do with politics. The Canadian government is suspending non essential travel of its nationals. Why would the airline fly all the way down here with empty planes? The red and blue have you all so stupid…SMFH.

  4. This has nothing to do with Antigua or Antiguans . CNN just voted Antigua on the list of places to
    Go in 2022 . Air Canada is all about money and good showing for their share holders hopefully this is just a short term plan. Hopefully also WestJet and sunwing will take up the slack because Canadians don’t like flying through the USA anymore. So the government of Antigua can work on WestJet to increase flights.

  5. It’s amazing in 2021 that people still don’t understand what the vaccine for COVID does.
    Why are people still thinking that you won’t get infected?
    All the vaccine does is to help increase the chances of having severe effects from the virus. In other, try to keep you out of the ICU.
    This way of thinking can also be blamed on the authorities who keep spreading the “wrong meggage.”

    • Nonsense. The jabs don’t work. Look at the highly jabbed UK, Israel, Gibraltar & Denmark for example. Notwithstanding vaccine injuries and adverse reactions, the vast majority of those persons testing positive and being hospitalised are jabbed. Indeed, the unvaxxed are less susceptible to the new Omicron variant.

  6. Harry Taylor, WestJet’s interim chief executive, states the following in this CBC story: “Despite all contingency planning, in addition to HIRING BACK THOUSANDS(?) of WestJetters to safely support peak operations, we find ourselves no longer able to predictably resource our planned schedule due to Omicron impact.”

    But on November 1, 2021, Richard Bartrem, WestJet’s VP of Marketing Communications, said the following: “WE DO HAVE 300 EMPLOYEES PLACED ON UNPAID LEAVE until they become (‘vaccine’), compliant. If those employees are not fully vaccinated by the end of November, they could lose their job.”
    Things aren’t adding up at WestJet
    Emphasis supplied (mine)

  7. This appears to be fake news. There is nothing on the Air Canada website or media centre about cancelling any flights.

  8. After reading all these comments , I think it best not to comment. I am a Canadian who loves Antigua and hopes to be back soon.
