According to Transport Canada, Sunwing influencers who did not respect health measures on board on December 30 will have to pay a total of $59,500 in fines.
The federal agency said the majority of passengers who committed offenses received their tickets, with a total of 42 fines.
37 out of 154 passengers violated the rules, Transport Canada, which has been investigating since Jan. 4, has reported. “Eighteen [contraventions] related to non-compliance with the vaccination status, and 24 related to non-compliance with instructions for wearing a mask. The total value of these fines, which can be a maximum of $5,000 each,” the notice said.
Flying rules should not be taken lightly. With this investigation, we want to send a clear message: the behavior of some passengers on the Montreal-Cancun flight on December 30 was unacceptable, and is not tolerated. “Canada will continue to ensure that all aviation rules are respected at all times,” said Canadian Transport Minister Omar Alghabra.
Remember, these Quebecers, described by Prime Minister Trudeau as Ostrogoths, were talked about when photos shared on social networks showed that they were partying aboard a Sun Wing plane on December 30.
Some travelers had difficulty returning home after these videos were broadcast, as many airlines refused to board them due to non-compliance with their vaccination status.
