Canada and the U.S. are closing the border to non-essential traffic. U.S. officials say trade will not be affected. Earlier this week, Canada closed its borders to most non-residents. Air crews and diplomats are exempt, at last update. As a result, there have been a significant number of flight reductions and YYC will be asked to park aircraft here. Effective Wednesday, Calgary is one of four Canadian airports permitted to receive international flights. All Canadians are reminded to avoid non-essential travel outside of Canada.
