Masks are no longer required at JA Douglas McCurdy Sydney Airport, or onboard aircraft flying in Canada, however their use is recommended. 

This aligns with updated guidance from the Federal Government:

Masks will continue to be recommended by the Federal Government as a public health measure. We support those who want to continue to wear masks at our airport.

We are pleased to see the remaining COVID-19 Canadian border measures removed; passengers travelling outside of Canada should be aware of any requirements remaining at their destination:

REMINDER TO ARRIVE AT THE AIRPORT A MINIMUM OF 90 MINUTES PRIOR TO YOUR FLIGHT DEPARTURE TIME:

It is important to arrive at the airport well in advance of your flight, so you have plenty of time to check in, drop off your bags and go through security screening.

  • Check-in deadlines
    To avoid delays at the airport, we encourage you to check in from 24 hours prior to departure using your airline app or online. If you prefer to check in at the airport, please arrive well before the check-in deadline, so that you are not bumped from your flight. 
  • Baggage drop-off
    Make sure to arrive well before the airline check-in counters close, as you cannot check bags once the deadlines have passed. Overweight baggage can take longer to check. 

Check-in deadlines

It is important to respect the airline check-in deadlines for your itinerary. Failure to respect them may result in the reassignment of any reserved seats, the cancellation of reservations, and/or ineligibility for denied boarding compensation.

Please check with your individual airline to ensure you are planning to arrive on time for your flight:
