Post-COVID-19 lockdown, FlyOver Canada has announced a June 18 reopening date for its popular flight ride and Flying Whale Café. The attraction temporarily suspended operations this past March to support the public health response to the Coronavirus as travel restrictions and physical distancing measures were initiated.

The anticipated reopening will follow the provincial government’s approach on relaunching and will include rigorous cleaning, physical distancing and training protocols as outlined in Pursuit’s recently announced Safety Promise program.

“Since we paused operations this past March, we have worked diligently to redesign a visitor experience that ensures the safety of our guests, staff and surrounding community,” said Lisa Adams, Vice President, FlyOver Attractions by Pursuit.

New operational protocols will include reducing guest capacity during each ride and throughout the FlyOver Canada attraction, adopting stringent cleaning protocols as approved by Health Canada, and screening all staff before shifts.

Physical distancing initiatives will also include the use of face masks for staff and the installation of plexiglass barriers where possible.

“With travel limited this summer, we offer a unique way for guests to immerse themselves in flight across dramatic and stunning landscapes in both Canada and Iceland, all without leaving the city,” added Adams.

Additional highlights of FlyOver Canada’s safety measures include:
– Seat separation between groups and families to ensure appropriate social distancing
– The ride will be fully sanitized between guests
– High-frequency cleaning of all public spaces throughout the day
– Hand sanitizer stations at all property entrances, public spaces and near washrooms
– Personal protective equipment provided for all attractions staff
– Each small group to have a Flight Guide at all times to ensure physical distancing rules

Reintroducing FlyOver Iceland at FlyOver Canada

FlyOver Canada will also reintroduce FlyOver Iceland to this summer’s flight ride lineup. The experience, which opened in Reykjavik last August, provides guests with an exhilarating flight simulation over some of Iceland’s most iconic natural wonders and stunning scenery. We were able to experience FlyOver Iceland back in early March and it’s well worth a visit! FlyOver Iceland runs at FlyOver Canada from June 18 to August 31.
