New poll shows Canadians reluctant to travel by air

Airplane

A new poll suggests turbulence ahead for airlines seeking public support for their current COVID-19 plans.  

72 per cent of Canadians surveyed say they're not comfortable flying since decisions by several airlines to relax their own in-flight physical-distancing requirements.  

85 per cent of those surveyed also suggested that they're not getting on planes any time soon, telling pollsters they have no plans to travel outside the country by the end of the year.

Meanwhile, 86 per cent say they totally disagree with the idea of re-opening the border at the end of July, allowing Americans back into the country.
