OTTAWA — Air travellers will need to have their temperatures checked before they’re allowed to board planes but the system will take months to set up, Transport Minister Marc Garneau said Friday. The measure is meant to keep COVID-19 from spreading as more people start flying again. Garneau said the requirement will be phased in, starting with people boarding planes bound for Canada at the end of June. It will expand to the country’s four largest airports (in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Calgary) by the end of July, and then 11 more airports serving mostly domestic travellers at the end of September.
