In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, services have been temporarily suspended at many small airports. This table lists the airports where CBSA continues to offer service, and notes the airports where service hours have been temporarily reduced or suspended.

Please note that all aircraft operators arriving at airports of entry currently open for service by the CBSA remain subject to the Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) issued by Transport Canada. This NOTAM, until rescinded or amended by Transport Canada, requires all aircraft operators to funnel the majority of international and trans-border inbound flights to one of the following 10 airports:

The NOTAM restriction applies to the following operations when they are transporting passengers to Canada:

Exceptions from NOTAM

Aircraft operators conducting flight activities exempt from the NOTAM restriction (i.e. general aviation, MEDEVAC) may land at any airport open for CBSA business.

Visit NAV Canada for further explanations of the restrictions enforced by the NOTAM as well as the exceptions.
