A new initiative from the Italian government is allowing Air Canada flights to Rome to take off with no quarantine requirements once travellers arrive.

The airline will be operating these government-approved flights to the Eternal City from Toronto and Montreal starting on July 2.

Air Canada is the only Canadian airline participating in this program from Italy's ministry of health, which allows passengers on authorized flights to land in certain cities without having to go into isolation for a certain amount of time.

Travellers on these flights will have to provide a negative COVID-19 antigenic or molecular test taken within 48 hours of departure and then take another one once they arrive.

Justin Trudeau has previously suggested that people might be able to start travelling again this summer "if everything goes well," but no timeline has been given for when Canada's travel restrictions and requirements, including border closures and quarantine hotels, will be lifted.
