Aéro Montréal and the aerospace industry support the Québec Government in its fight against the Covid-19 pandemic

Montréal, January 6, 2021 – Aéro Montréal has taken note of recent announcements by the Québec Government and the new measures that will be put in place as of Saturday, January 9 to Monday, February 8 to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.

Québec's aerospace cluster understands that the Government has no choice but to make difficult but necessary decisions to counter this historic crisis and salutes the choice not to order the complete closure of the manufacturing sector.

This decision will enable the aerospace sector to meet its essential contractual obligations to its many local and international customers and prevent Québec from becoming a bottleneck in the global supply chain.

The aerospace industry is known for its very high health and safety standards, and companies in the sector will continue to reinforce the sanitary measures already in place and will make the additional efforts requested by the Quebec government to help stop the spread of the virus.

“We are facing an historic crisis that is hitting our sector hard and we are determined to continue to work with the authorities to curb this pandemic, which we hope will subside in the coming months thanks to the arrival of a vaccine and the many sanitary measures that have been put in place," said Suzanne M. Benoît, President of Aéro Montréal.
