Air Canada misleading ad - book travel to US

I keep seeing Air Canada ads that border is open and to book leisure travel to US.

The U.S., open for big adventures

Fully vaccinated Canadians can now fly to and from the U.S. with ease.

Famed U.S. sights from the East Coast to the West Coast are as close as ever. Get going again to see top landmarks, explore celebrated natural attractions, dig into incredible cuisines, and experience the unique culture across the U.S.
AFAIK, US border is closed for non essential travel. Why Air Canada is putting misleading ads?

There’s a difference between the land borders which are indeed closed vs air travel which has basically been open the whole time.

The land border is closed for non-essential travel. Is is still possible to take a flight to the US.

Canada/US land border is closed for non-essential travel.

Air border has never been closed, and you could fly over all you want.

Wow. Thanks for explaining! Good thinking on their part - crowded indoor spaces like airport and flights are not the places where Covid spreads.

Yeah man Costco, dinning in, malls or inside an airport huge difference. Especially cause one requires you to be negative tested to enter.

Stop fear mongering

While I agree with your statement in general, you don't need a negative test to enter an airport. They only check your temperature at security.

US pre-clearance is likely the exception. I suspect the US border agents check for a negative test if you're passing through an airport that does pre-clearance.

To board international flights you generally need some combination of vaccination and a negative test result, but as far as I know that's checked at the gate.

I just flew to the US, and nobody ever asked to see my test on the way out. CBP asked to see test on return.

The airline is responsible for checking the covid test results and attestation form. The CBP agent have never asked for it. On return trips, both the airline and customs agent will check for the test results.

No its ignorant because instead of EASILY looking it up he posted complaining and attacking AC: "Why Air Canada is putting misleading ads? "
