Coronavirus: Canada working with commercial airlines to repatriate stranded citizens

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday announced the government of Canada is working with commercial airlines to repatriate Canadians stranded abroad over the coronavirus pandemic.

Trudeau said several considerations are being made, including the closure of airspace, the local situation and the number of Canadians stranded in each country.

He said the government is looking into coordinating flights to Spain and Peru, and will announce additional countries as soon as possible.

According to Trudeau, the government will not be able to help everyone, but they will help as many as possible.

Trudeau made the comments in a rare Saturday address from Rideau Cottage where he is currently in self-isolation.
